Breed Rating (15 Reviews)
Hybrid 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.
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.
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.

Warren, Rhode Rock and Amber Link Laying Hens
Description: Its with great regret I am having to rehome our three lovely hens. We bought them in April at point of lay and have had 2 - 3 eggs daily since then. They are stunning birds, friendly - will come over to you and are used to being handled. They are healthy birds and have been living in an eglu go up since April. Unfortunately we are having to rehome them due to a change in personal circumstances. We are looking for a nice friendly home with opportunity for the hens to FREE RANGE!! Please contact me if you thinkn you can offer our hens a new home, we will be sad to see them go. Thanks, Meg
