This is a red feathered bird ideal for free range production. This bird is robust to disease and possesses a very rounded conformation, which results in a presentable well finished bird with excellent taste.
After brooding for the three weeks it can be managed on free range with minimum supplementary feeding and be ready for consumption / sale after 10 to 14 weeks. This bird is ideal for live market sales, and as a replacement for indigenous chicken.
It is important to note that this bird is not meant to replace the commercial broiler or layer as it will not attain the production levels of these specialized hybrids. This bird is more suitable for replacing the indigenous bird or for a farmer who would like to manage his / her flock with less intense inputs and have an organic product which has tastier meat.
