The most striking feature of the Hubbard F15 Breeder is its size, genetically selected to obtain a standard-sized broiler from a dwarf breeder. When permitted the Hubbard F15 Female can be housed at a density 20 to 25% higher per m² than a standard breeder. The feed savings per hen come to an average of 8 kg/hen or 371 g/chick at 64 weeks, giving this product a highly significant economic benefit.
Combined with the genetic white or yellow Hubbard males, the Hubbard F15 female enables production of a chicken offering the flexibility required by the modern poultry industry in terms of live cost and overall meat yield, across all ranges with a live weight of 1.5 to 2.8 kg. Like its parents, the Hubbard F15 Broiler has one of the very best FCR's. Finally, its strengths also include carcass quality and liveability.
