Our Imperial broiler is a colored meat bird that is rich in flavor. While not as broad-breasted as the Conventional Broiler, this colored broiler chicken has a longer breast bone and larger thigh and drumstick portions. These meat chickens are known for their textured meat and gourmet flavor that’s preferred by discriminating consumers and many high-end restaurant chefs.
This broiler grows at a moderate rate and achieves a live weight of approximately 5.4 pounds in 9 weeks on 12.5 pounds of feed (FCR 2.30). Day-old chicks are available as red broilers or a hatchery choice and can be ordered as a straight run, only males or only females. Fertile eggs for our colored broiler can also be ordered for hatcheries or family farms.
