Production chickens

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Just wondering what "production chicken" means and if it is a good or a bad thing. Thank you for any response!

It simply means it has adequate production of laying to approach commercial viability.  This generally means, under the right feed and other conditions, that you could expect 6 eggs per week of egg production.  This is neither good/bad.  It is what it is.  A productive hen.

Yeah what fred said.
And as far as if it is a bad thing, it depends on what you look for in a chicken,if you are looking for eggs mainly but dont really want to show the chicken, then it's a good thing but if you want this chicken for showing then it's a bad thing as this production chickens do not meet the standards for showing.
They are still wonderful beautiful chickens tho.

Well I think they are wicked cute and not looking to show them at all. So bonus if they are bred to lay more eggs. I just have chickens as pets and the eggs are a bonus, no showing happening. Thanks for the information!
