The Red-Bro Color Yield Broiler is a fast-growing meat bird with most of the same qualities as the Cornish Cross breed. It has red plumage throughout its body with white down feathering showing through. These broiler strains are imported French hybrid strains that were developed from Continental and American heritage chicken breeds in the 1960’s. They were started because of the Label Rouge program for free ranging chickens. The Red-Bro Broiler tends to forage more and grow at a slightly slower rate than the Cornish Cross, but faster than the Red Ranger. Red-Bro is a Rhode Island Red color pattern with dark red feathers and a black tail. Red-Bro chicks have yellow beaks, shanks, and skin.
We Recommend Feeding Red-Bro Broilers a 21-22% protein starter for the first 2-3 weeks then switch to a 18-19% protein grower until week 7 and finish out feeding with a 16-17% protein finisher feed. If any of your birds experience any leg problems, it is likely due to a deficiency. Vitamins added to their water will usually clear this up with 24-48 hours.
