This breed is a combination of some of the heaviest dual purpose breeds still in existence. It was developed for those who want a hardy, healthy chicken with firm and flavourful meat. Mortality is very low in this breed, and weak legs and heart attacks are almost unheard of.
The females are a rusty red in colour and are generally quiet. The females will grow to approximately 6 lbs. live weight at about 15 weeks. As females approach maturity (15- 20 weeks), they tend to put on fat, so if larger-size females are desired, we suggest a diet lower in protein and energy. The males are white and may have dark markings on their backs. Males will grow to approximately 8 lbs. live weight at 15 weeks.
