    Could someone please clarify if this information is correct

    1- Commercial Hybrids are produced through 2 different parent stock (pure breed stock with best genetics) to produce the higher productive bird.

    2- If i hatch chicks from the Commercial Hybrids that I first bought for my business will be less productive than the Commercial hybrids.

    3- Hybrid birds from top quality parent stock are more productive than using one of the top quality parent stock as layers.

    This is all true in general or on average over the long run. But, individual results may vary.
