This species was bred in the USSR by crossing LEGHORN white cocks and non-fat hens. The first work on the withdrawal of the breed began in the early 1930s, when Soviet scientists crossed the Leshgorny cock and the usual hammer
For 25 years, scientists occasionally crossed the resulting breed of chickens and Leshgorne cock. Most of the time scientists crossed the resulting rock among themselves
In 1953, scientists still managed to achieve their own and their breed was approved at the state level. The Russian white hen was distinguished by a greater mass and egg productivity
However, Soviet scientists did not celebrate their victory for a long time, since the species in 1965 yielded in terms of the number of eggs produced to Leshore
General description The Russian white chicken can be characterized as follows:
- They have a well developed head, its dimensions are proportional to the body. The crest of the roosters is pronounced. The shape resembles a sheet with five prongs. The comb of the chickens does not stand straight, it tilts to the side. Russian white chickens have a thick neck and a long bulging chest. Well-developed wings. Birds are able to make flights over short distances. Feathering on the lower limbs is absent. Legs are bright yellow in color.
Russian white chicken easily differs from others in its white color. Chickens of other colors in this breed are not born. As for the chicks, at birth they are all bright yellow. With growing chickens get rid of the yellow fluff and get white feathers
In Russia, it is strictly ensured that the Lengorn genes are not displayed in Russian white hens. Any deviation from the norm leads to isolation from other chickens and destruction
Characteristics of the species Soviet scientists deduced this breed with a total increase in the productivity of the carrying of eggs. It is worth noting that they succeeded. One hen for a year gives almost 170-190 eggs at a weight of 65 grams. Additionally, Russian white chicken has other qualities, for instance, they are resistant neoplasm effects of microorganisms
The immunity of these chickens has long been investigated by leading Russian specialists in the control of avian diseases in the hope of finding an effective remedy for the effects of many parasites
Chickens are so unpretentious that they are perfect for divorce in mass and individual households. Not only can birds themselves eat on the garden, so they also have resistance to different types of microorganisms. The imagination and survivability of the younger generation are striking. Approximately 95-98% of chickens survive
Despite its unpretentiousness, the hens are nevertheless recommended to be kept on a coarse litter. This version of the content is great for mass chickens. Farmers should take into account the peculiarity of the breed and give chickens more freedom
To drive them into an enclosure is necessary only with the onset of the evening. As for feeding, the Russian white hammer grows better and gives more eggs if it feeds itself. Chickens prefer to eat seeds of plants and insects
At large, chickens behave very actively, so to limit their movements it is better to make a fence that is 1.5-2 meters high (chickens can fly and too low a fence can fly). Cours can also be kept in and chicken coops, without walking
However, the lack of active movement adversely affects the fertility of the breed, chickens begin to give 10-20% eggs. In addition, their content is complicated by additional problems: the hens need to be constantly cleaned, maintain the optimum temperature and microclimate in the shed.
