DOMINANT BROWN D 392 (Salmon) is a very attractive coloured program reminiscent of the Partridge or Golden Partridge breeds, with the difference that our program is auto sexing and has variability in eggshell colour, from white to cream to light brown. It is very popular as a final hybrid for self-sufficient farms. Owing to its attractive colouring, it is also used in the export of parent breeding pairs for the production of eggs in self-sufficient family farms. The asset is relatively high productivity, namely laying over 280 eggs.
This program is the result of cross breeding the Brown Leghorn paternal population and the Leghorn with Columbian or Sussex marking 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 predominantly yellow, particularly on the head and around the beak. The one-day-old hen receives recessive allele "s" from the father and is predominantly brown, often with typical back stripes, characteristic of Brown Leghorns and Partridges.
