Description
 

Production Black Chickens

The Production Black Chicken is a hybrid white egg laying chicken breed developed by Ideal Poultry. The breed was originally developed by breeding various Leghorn Chicken as well as Anconas and California White chickens. They were first bred to be more resistant to Marek's Disease, and then they were selected for their barred black and silver plumage.
The Production Black has excellent white egg production, and it will rival most varieties of Leghorns in yearly egg production. It has also been selected to be a great bird for families and small backyard chicken farmers who want a slightly calmer bird with the beautiful barred color pattern of the Barred Plymouth Rock and the white egg color of the Leghorns.

Though they are not recognized as a Standard poultry breed, they are an excellent choice for backyard chicken farmers who desire an excellent white egg laying hen with beautiful barred color patterns. This breed can be differentiated from the Barred Plymouth Rock by its inferior size as well its white earlobes, a trademark of chickens that lay white eggs.
