Novo/Lohmann Brown are a commercial hybrid very similar to Warrens. They have been specially bred to have optimum egg production and be calm good natured birds which are well suited to all production systems.
Commercial hybrids have a complex selective breeding which has been perfected over many generations to produce specific grandparent and parent stock which are then used to produce the final laying birds.
Novo/Lohmann Brown start laying at about 20 - 24 weeks old and will lay eggs for about 14 - 20 months. They usually have a rest, called a moult, during their second winter for about 2 - 3 months. They will lay an egg each day once they start, occasionally they will miss a day. As they get older they will start to lay less. Commercially they lay over 330 eggs per year. In back gardens this varies but is usually over 300.
RIR-Black cross hybrids

The Coloured Hybrids are bred from Rhode Island red, Black Rock Leghorn and others crossed with white or brown commercials. This gives them a calm nature and they lay eggs all year round. (300+). They have been reared together in the same flock so they get along mixed together.
