This campaign circular discusses range management. The number of birds that can be ranged on an acre will depend upon the type of sod and the fertility of the land. On most land, 250 to 500 pullets can be ranged per acre.
Pullets should be reared on range after geing started in permanent or colony brooder houses. They should be hardened off by letting them run on wire sun porches or gravel yards in front of the brooding houses and then transferred to the shelters on the range.
