Novo 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 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 can lay up to 330 eggs per year. In back gardens this varies but is usually over 300.
Rhode-Rock Hybrids are predmominantly black with blue fluorescence and golden brown lacing to the neck/body. Rhode Island Red Hybrids are deep brown in colour. The RIR, Barred plymouth Rock and Rhode-Rock lay brown eggs all year round (300+).
The Novo Brown, Rhode-Rock, Barred Plymouth Rock and Rhode Island Red Pullets have a calm nature and have been reared together in the same flock from chicks. They see each other as equals and get along fine mixed together.
