Hybrid chickens have been developed as a result of selective breeding by crossing pure breed stock with particular desirable characteristics. Originally they were a straight cross of two different pure breed chickens, but now most hybrids are combinations of several breeds and have almost become breeds in there own right. This makes of birds that excel as layers, are very hardy or produce high quality meat or eggs.
