The POCO Breed!

The POCO breed is another successful cross breed, bred by the  ICBH Group offering a truly remarkable indigenous free-range chicken that took 4 years to breed with, yet again keeping in mind that we wanted a super indigenous free-range chicken that would grow fast, with our ultimate aim been a meat chicken.

The POCO performed so well during our development breeding program and record keeping, showing that he POCO grew fast, achieving good weight. The POCO championed as a superb egg layer laying large to extra large egg. The POCO is be a dual purpose indigenous free-range breed. The POCO Roosters and Hens grow equally at the same pace, achieving the same weights which very seldom happen with most breeds.

POCO rosters and hens produce highly fertile eggs with hatchability exceeding 80% with a breeding reassure of 10 hens to 1 roosters. The hens are great mothers,  looking well after her chicks. The roosters and hens are have placid natures, perfect for children and wonderful garden pet to own.

POCO  chickens love to forage in open areas in the day and at night return to coop, they too like any other free-range chicken like to perch high off the ground at night. 

The POCO name is a registered breed, trade name / trade mark of the ICBH Group (PTY) and can only be purchased from an ICBH Hatchery to be an original POCO, beware of who you buy from.
