    Re: range chicken

    To me range chicken means nothing without the word free in front.

    Presumably this is another Am/Br variation.... either that or some marketing person wanted to distinguish some slightly less free point on the continuum between 'free range' and 'battery' - they could scratch around in the dirt, but not in very much dirt.
