The Bytham Blue
The Bytham Blue hybrid has been developed by crossing a Rhode Island and a Maran. This breeding has created a fantastic laying bird that is capable of laying between 200 to 250 brown eggs a year.
Her very pretty plumage that varies from a slate grey through to a vivid violet colour makes for a very popular choice. She is also perfect for the whole family to enjoy due to her highly docile and friendly nature.
Eggs per annum - 200 to 250 - Brown egg
The Bytham Sussex
The Bytham Sussex hybrid is a very striking bird and certainly brings back memories of the classic farmyard chicken! The traditional Light Sussex has been bred with Rhode Islands to produce a far more reliable layer who can lay in excess of 220 eggs a year.
Again she has a very manageable and sweet nature. A great addition to any flock.
Eggs per annum - 220+ Brown egg
The Bytham Speckledy hybrid is very similar in looks to the Maran but has been bred for a greater egg production, reaching the 250 mark. As the Speckledy has the Maran bloodline, it also exhibits the dark chestnut brown egg renowned in the french breed.
She has a lovely, friendly character and is easy to handle. They free-range well and suit adapt to most situations.
Eggs per annum - 250 - Brown egg
