What is Dominant CZ Chicken

Dominant CZ is a hen hatchery company in the Czech Republic. The company was founded in 1989. The purpose of the company is to hatch hybrid hens, which lay more than 250 eggs a year and imitating the non-hybrid species of hens.

This family-owned private company from the Czech Republic specializes in the breeding and selection of laying and dual-purpose poultry. For more than 30 years DOMINANT CZ’s original genetic programs dynamically expand finding new partners in 60 countries on 4 continents. With the modernization of existing facilities and the construction of new, there is a continuous increase in breeding capacity as well as research and development.

Dominant CZ hybrids are genetically bred for specific purposes as follows:

  • do not die prematurely
  • not aggressive
  • well feathered
  • all the same size

The hybrids are always hatched from two non-hybridized hens. The hens start to lay eggs in the 20th–23rd week of their life.

Outside the Czech Republic, Dominant CZ works in 49 more countries in the world. Hens hatched by this company are favorite, because of their easy breeding and higher egg-laying and lifetime, unlike other hens.

In the Philippines, veterinarian Dr. Erwin Joseph S. Cruz is the authorized distributor.

The most popular Dominant CZ breeds in the Philippines are D107 (Blue), D109 (Black), D149 (Black), and D102 (Brown). These breeds are raised primarily for egg production.
