Our Imperial 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, grey broilers, or mixed colored broilers and can be ordered as a straight run or cockerels (males) only. Fertile eggs for our colored broiler can also be ordered for hatcheries or family farms.


We are a participant of the National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP), working closely with federal agencies and state laboratories to prevent the spread of poultry diseases. NPIP provides guidelines and regulations for sanitization, testing and biosecurity. Our commitment to these standards, combined with a comprehensive vaccination program, ensures healthy, high quality chicks you expect from a commercial hatchery.
