DOMINANT RED BARRED D 902 is a very attractive coloured program. Due to its golden feather colouring, it is often referred to as Dominant Gold. It is very popular as final hybrid for self-sufficient farms. The asset is the high productivity, namely laying about 300 eggs. Light brown eggshell colour is characteristic. The capons are used for the production of traditional highly delicious poultry meat.
This program is the result of cross breeding the red barred BRIR with barred gene (Bar) paternal population and the Rhode Island White (RIW) maternal population. When hatching one-day-old chickens, colour sexing is applied by using allele of the Silver/Gold (S/s) gene, where the one-day-old cockerel acquires the dominant allele of this "S" gene from the mother and is white and the one-day-old hen receives recessive allele "s" from the father and is red.
