Hubbard finalizing expansion in specialty chickens

Published on: Feb 5, 2013

Chicken genetics organization Hubbard last week has reported that the company is finalizing a multi-million dollar investment in its research and development center for the Hubbard Color product range in St. Loup d'Ordon just south of Paris, France.

The company said it has demolished and rebuilt eight breeding houses and plans to build four additional houses on the site, using the highest standards for bio-security and most recent technologies.

The Hubbard Color line meets demand from specialty markets such as free-range and organic chickens that are grown in response to demand "for taste, tradition and quality," according to the announcement.

The line includes a broad range of female and male chicken breeding stock, from which customers can order their own combination of genetics. The line includes Redbro, P6N and JA genetics.
