Kosher King originate from heritage breeds such as the Barred Rock and Sussex. Around 80% of the Kosher Kings are barred while 20% are a mix of silver and red. The Kosher King is a cousin to the Freedom Ranger and exhibit the same growth rate, body confirmation, and personality. Our breed of Kosher Kings are excellent foragers.
On most weeks, we sell broiler chicks to growers raising for the ethnic food markets in NYC. They prepare what they call a Confucius Dish, which requires it to be a female. We sell them a higher percentage of females than males for this reason. This gives us a certain amount of male broilers that we can sell at the same price as straight run. Most growers prefer the males since they grow faster and get larger than the females.
