The Starozagoska Red Chicken

This rare Bulgarian breed of chicken developed by the Hybrid center of Poultry, Stara Zagora, Bulgaria is red feathered with yellow skin. The breed was developed primarily for laying, giving a brown egg and approximately 200 eggs per year of good size. This is a rapidly growing breed making it dual purpose.

A large Rhode Island Red rooster was bred to local red hens to develop this breed. It’s uncertain if there is a Bantam variety due to the rarity of the breed. The Starozagorska Red Chicken is reported in parts of the world other than Bulgaria, though little known outside the country.
