Hy-Line Brown is the world’s most balanced brown egg layer. She is capable of producing over 450 x rich brown eggs in her first 100 weeks (approx), peaks well and begins lay early with optimum egg size.
These traits combined with unrivaled feed efficiency, the best egg quality in the market and excellent livability give the Hy-Line Brown the perfect balance, which means more profit for the poultry producer whether a commercial producer or a backyard layer.
The Hy-line brown will have 2 very good seasons in them, with a decline in egg production of approx 20% each season.
We recommend replacing your hens approx every 2 to 3 years.
