This Rhode Island Red crossed Barred Plymouth Rock takes its genetics from the original
black hybrid breeding programmes. Originally from Harco and Arbor Acre stock and
now bred by Hendrix/Shaver, this bird comes from the biggest and most diverse gene
pool available for this type hybrid. Being part of Hendrix Genetics means this strain
has continued to be selected and improved year on year. The big advantage of this
strain over other black hybrids is the commercial nature of the parent stock and
breeding system. Pullet chicks are supplied from vaccinated parents and are THV/Mareks
vaccinated in the hatchery, parent stock and chicks are salmonella tested. This,
along with complete traceability, allows this strain to have Lion Code status. Well
proven over decades in all systems including the most demanding environments, this
bird is suitable for everyone.
