INDIGENOUS CHICKEN BREEDERS & HATCHERIES

The ROCO Breed!

The ROCO breed was bred by Shane Schoeman when he saw the need 6 years ago to breed a dual purpose African indigenous free-range chicken, that would grow fast for meat as well as an exceptional egg layer, laying large eggs. 

His vision, to have a chicken that could survive and strive well in Africa the natural way meaning free-range, a chicken breed that would have low input costs, making the ROCO profitable to farm with.

The ROCO are hardy chickens that survive well eating off the land in camped off areas, you can also supplement some of the feed which will help them to grow faster and laying. It is important to keep your ROCO chickens well maintaining and healthy by keeping to a good vaccination program as well good housekeeping. 

ROCO hens produce extremely fertile eggs and the hatch rates are very good hatching strong chicks.

The ROCO 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 ROCO, beware of who you buy from.
