Hybrid Chickens …

Hybrid Chickens are cross-bred from pure breeds such as the Light Sussex, Rhode Island Red or Leghorn. Hybrid chickens have been bred for their hardiness, high egg production, disease resistance and temperament. The Hybrids from Charlottes Chickens come fully vaccinated before they get to us (16 weeks). Most are friendly docile birds best suited to back garden living and make excellent, low maintenance pets.
