Brown Shaver

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

it just occurred to me that people on this site may not have heard of this breed before as I am from New Zealand. this chicken was bred for nz and can lay up to 340 eggs  compared to other breeds. but as far as I know they are the same as normal chickens but are brown and a little white. please read my other help post regarding brown shaver chicken. thanks:/

Isn't the Brown Shaver just one of the many commercial hybrids of the Shaver/Hendrix/ISA/Bovan/HiSex/Hendrix/DeKalb/Babcock genetics consortium? It is merely a commercial sex-link, is it not?

So, while a terrific pullet, I am sure, it isn't a "breed" as such.  We have many of the commercial sexlinks from that corporation/conglomerate here.
