What are the hybrid breeds?
Red sex links are Hybrids,and production reds,black sex-link,leg bars,and I believe Easter Eggers play some type of part there,but these are the only hybrids I know and a few I have.
High School biology class was a long time ago but if my memory serves, a hybrid is a crossbreed, ie the parents are of different breeds. A first generation (F1) hybrid will not breed true to type. Hybrids can out perform (bigger, faster, better egg production, better feed to meat conversion, etc) than either of their parent breeds. This is known as "hybrid vigour".
Most commercial breeds are hybrids. (Eg ISA Brown).
If you are asking for a list of different hybrids, others will be able to give you a more comprehensive answer
A hybrid is the first generation offspring of any two different purebreds.
So a list is impossible.
Thanks for your help everyone!!
