Our Standard range of hybrid bred Hens
Hybrid chickens are hens that have been cross-bred from pure breeds such as the Light Sussex, Rhode Island Red or Leghorn. Overall hybrids are cheaper to buy than pure breeds, and will give you more eggs in the short term, but will not lay for as long as their pure breed cousins. Hybrid chickens have been bred for their hardiness, high egg production, disease resistance and temperament.
