Dominant Sussex D 104

DOMINANT SUSSEX D 104 is an attractively coloured layer for small scale and free range production conditions and is exported as GPS, PS and commercial stock. This programme is very similar as old native breed Sussex Light, but our synthetic pure lines have yellow skin and use feather sexing in the hybridisation programme. This bird is adapted for sub-optimal and harsh production conditions for free range and small scale farming by our customers in Switzerland, United Kingdom, Austria, Italy, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine, Nepal and Ecuador.

The big advantage of this programme is high egg productivity (>300 brown shell eggs at 74 weeks of age).

DOMINANT SUSSEX D 104 is result of crossing paternal Sussex stock with slow feathering maternal stock. Day old chicks are feather sexed. Day old cockerel chicks are slow feathering and day old hen chicks are fast feathering.
