What Is Hubbard Chicken

Hubbard is a breeding company that produces colored broilers. Hubbard is a subsidiary of Aviagen – one of the two biggest breeders (The other is Cobb-Vantress)

Aviagen ® is a global poultry breeding company that develops pedigree lines for the production of commercial broiler chickens under the Arbor Acres®, Indian River®, and Ross® brand names. The Rowan Range® and Specialty Males® are specialty breeding stock from Aviagen that offer greater flexibility for customers to meet specific or niche market requirements.

Aviagen employs more than 4,600 people and has a distribution network serving customers in 100 countries.

Hubbard’s colored broiler is a meat-type bird that has a comparable taste, if not better to our Philippine native chicken. These hardy birds can be readily ranged in open areas requiring minimal supervision as these can forage and source food from naturally available food sources to supplement normal feed ration. These birds are well suited to our climatic conditions with better growth rate, feed conversion, higher meat yield, and faster time to attain slaughter weight compared to our native chicken without compromising disease resistance. These chickens can grow around 1.5-1.8kg live weight in 56-60 days fed with commercial feeds.

Since 1921, Hubbard has been a worldwide reference for broiler breeding stock. The company supplies day-old grandparent and parent stock chicks all over the world in order to produce chicken meat.

Always with the goal of offering improved products to its loyal and well-recognized customers, Research & Development is the core business and the continuous investments in new available technologies have proven to be key.

Hubbard’s commitment is to offer its customers the widest range of products covering all your needs, ranging from fast-growing and cost-efficient broilers to high-value specialty (Premium) chickens.
