Ziwani RED TRICOLOR

Ziwani RED TRICOLOR is very popular attractively coloured breed for commercial, small scale and free range production conditions. This breed is very similar as the BARRED RHODE ISLAND RER. We have the parent stock, therefore you will be getting the F1.

This breed is very attractive and highly adapted for sub-optimal and harsh production conditions for free range and small scale farming by our customers around Africa.

The big advantage of this breed is high egg productivity >310 dark brown shell eggs at 74 weeks age (if they are feed commercial layer feeds).

Sexing

Ziwani RED TRICOLOR is the result of crossing paternal fast feathering Rhode Island Tricolor stock with maternal slow feathering Rhode Island Red (RIR) stock.

Since both F1 male and female look alike, Day old chicks are feather sexed. Day old cockerel chicks are slow feathering and day old hen chicks are fast feathering.

We are only selling Day old chicks in the above breeds at a very friendly cost of Ksh100 each for strain run (as they come from the incubator) or Ksh120 for sexed chicks, therefore is you want to select the number of females and males the cost would be Ksh120 ($1.2).
