Olam Point of Lay Hens
Point-of-Lay is the phrase we use to describe pullets approaching the age when they start laying eggs.
The Olam Pullets Lohmann Classic Brown variety of chicken is raised for superior egg production. It is the hybrid product of selective crossbreeding between New Hampshire and other brown-egg-laying breeds.
- They begin laying within 18-22 weeks
- On average, each hen produces up to 300 eggs per year.
- Its high feed intake capacity with improved feed conversion ratio.
- Superior egg production with comparably large eggs
- Excellent livability in different climates
- Adaptable to various housing and management systems.
- Ability to perform well and adapt to a variety of conditions.
- Thus, it is one of the best breeds of laying birds available to the Nigerian market.
- Generally. most Lohmann Browns have a caramel/brown shade of feathers, with white feathers in a pattern around their necks, and white feathers at the tips of their tail feathers.
- The Lohmann Brown has been referenced for enhancing balanced performance and production of high-quality-strong-shelled eggs.
Although these pullets were mainly developed as battery birds (perform better in battery cages), their adaptive nature enables them to thrive in free-range and deep litter housing systems. Therefore, it is ideal for both small-scale and large-scale farmers as it is economical.
- Kindly note that the 3-in-1 EDS vaccine is not administered to the 14 and 16 weeks old layers as customers prefer to supervise the vaccination themselves.
