Hybrid Chickens

Breed Rating (16 Reviews)


Hybrid History

Hybrids birds are highly cross bred chickens. Most hybrids are based on the classic Rhode Island Red, Maran, Plymouth Rock, Sussex or Leghorns. The development of hybrid chickens started in the 1950's when there was a hugh growth in the demand for eggs and meat. The most common hybrid is the warren hen which is a classic brown hen. In recent years however there has been a larger variety of hybrids becoming available which have both good egg layer ability and the looks to match.

Hybrid Behaviour

Typically the chickens have been breed to be good egg layers, friendly and docile - rather than having a splendid display feathers common in pure breed hens.

Hybrid Varieties

There are a wide variety of hybrid birds available including Black Rock, Maran Cuivre, Bovans Nera, Calder Ranger, Goldline, Meadowsweet Ranger, White Star, Sussex Star, Bluebelle, Speckedlys, Isa Brown. Many of these varierties are breed by specific poultry suppliers.

- An Omleteer,

ISA warren great bird - Adam,

I have owned four of these for about 2 years now and their egg production is great we get 3-4 eggs a day and they lay right through winter to. The ISA warren is the type of brown hen typically used in battery farming and have been bred not to go broody however this is not un heard off as there are exceptions. These hens are kind and affectionate and can be tamed easily and often enjoy cuddles. These chickens generally prefer free range and will get bored easily if kept in a small run. The only downside to this breed is they are very rough foragers and enjoy digging and will easily damage young plant shoots so if your a garden proud person maybe you will need to find a less damaging breed of chicken e.g pekins. In conclusion this breed is very rewarding and a great addition to any garden.

Skylines and bluebells - Nic,

I have two of each, have had them for around 3 months now. The bluebells might still be on the young side so no eggs yet from them but my lovely Skylines, Kiki and Rio have laid almost every day ...beautiful blue eggs too, my friends love it when I can spare the odd half dozen! Find the bluebells a little skittish and because they're the biggest birds in my flock and also grey coloured unlike the others (I also have 3 ex bats) they're at the bottom of the pecking order. Perhaps I should get some more to even the odds out.
