Who is kvohchet in the yard?

On the bird's yard, you just can not meet anyone: from small quails to large and important turkeys, from screaming geese to imposing indotecks. But still the most famous in the bird's yard is a chicken. Just chickens in our time there are so many breeds that farmers, who lived a couple of centuries ago, just could not keep their surprise, get them to get to us today.

They breed and breed new breeds of chickens in different countries, but they invariably spread to other countries of the world. So, for example, we have such an excellent breed, as chicken bra. And the beginning of this breed was laid in the NorthAmerica in the nineteenth century. It is well known that these chickens were registered in 1874, and it was from this time that they began, let's say, a triumphal procession around the world.

What is the value of the breed of brahma?

To begin with, among the rocks obtained bycrossing (so-called crosses), three variations are known: egg, meat and meat-egg. Brahma belongs to the third direction. They were taken out for the purpose of obtaining both meat and eggs. However, it so happened that over time they became more and more fattened. There are facts when adult cocks under the weight of their own weight barely kept on their feet. So meat obviously prevailed over egg production.

But everything is not so rosy in these chickens

And later, more and more attention was paid topurely decorative features of the breed, because these chickens are very beautiful: they have magnificent feathers and peculiar "panties" on their paws. And cocks in general are considered handsome, because they have a full chest, bright catkins and a beautiful, albeit short, tail. In general, today these birds are bred basically as a decorative breed. The most famous brahma is light and dark, but in some cases they also give out the coloring red, fawn and partridge.

That is, in this example, you can trace not only the geography of distribution of chickens around the world, but also how can the tendencies to grow them change: from egg-meat through meat to decorative.

This does not mean, of course, that the eggs from these chickensthe owners will not wait, but the productivity has clearly fallen, and this is a fact. And note that the egg-laying rate falls on those individuals that are more than two years old, and on average it is 100-120 eggs per year (by comparison: Loman Brown has an average of 300-310 eggs per year, and Haysex Brown has up to 360 pieces ).

The difference, of course, is weighty.
