Hybrid Chickens are cross-bred from pure breeds such as the Light Sussex, Rhode Island Red, or Leghorn. There are hybrid table birds and, more common for backyard chicken keepers, hybrid layers.

Uses: Utility – eggs/meat and as pets.
Origin: Crosses between pure breeds or other hybrids
Eggs: Hybrid layers: usually more pure breeds.
Weight: Various – layers are usually light, fast-maturing with good feed conversion. Table hybrids are heavy to provide a good carcass in a short time so are extremely fast to mature.
Useful to Know: Cheaper than pure breeds, available in quantity, and usually tame easily. Normally vaccinated.
