This silver-feathered bird is a well-balanced performer for either egg or meat production. It lays a high number of eggs and delivers excellent carcass yield after slaughter. The SASSO Silver is also notable for its beautiful, ash grey feathering, which makes her particularly appreciated by the domestic or backyard chicken market. Its flexibility and unique characteristics offer great value for you and your operations. Autosexing can be completed with the Silver as it produces feather-sexable day-old chicks. The Silver layer is able to thrive in different production environments with minimal management.

These recommendations, based on our experience, are intended to allow the expression of our strains’ genetic potential in normal operations without any responsibility on the part of SASSO. An environment, biosecurity conditions, the geographical location, or specific equipment might require adaptations that have not been taken in consideration in these general recommendations.
