Ginger Broiler

Our new Ginger Broiler meat bird variety is built like a Cornish Cross, but without the issues of a fast-growing breed. The Ginger Broilers are a heavy-to-medium growth bird, and are natural foragers, very active and ascites resistant. With essentially no leg problems — and high-altitude tolerant — this easy to raise breed is a winner. They will vary from nearly white to dark ginger-colored, and dress out very nicely. The Ginger Broilers will range from nearly white to dark ginger-colored birds. Because they don’t have the livability issues, they can also be kept longer and processed later or as needed.

Benefits of ginger to broilers

Improvement in body weight gain of broiler chicks fed on ginger might be due to the active components present in the ginger which stimulates digestive enzymes and improves overall digestion and thus leads to increased body weight gain.

How to use ginger for poultry diseases

A ginger extract shows promise as an oral adjuvant for vaccination against infectious diseases in poultry, according to new research from China reported by L. Zhai and colleagues at Zhejiang University.

They explain in the journal, Poultry Science that infectious bursal disease (IBD; Gumboro disease), caused by infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV), is an immunosuppressive infectious disease of global economic importance in poultry.

Their experiment was designed to evaluate the effect of oral administration of ginseng stem-leaf saponins (GSLS) on humoral and gut mucosal immunity in chickens vaccinated with live IBDV vaccine, and furthermore, to test its protective efficacy against virulent IBDV challenge following vaccination.

In Experiment 1, chickens were orally administered with GSLS at 5mg per kg bodyweight for seven days, and then immunized with live IBDV vaccine via the oral route. Serum was sampled on 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 weeks post-vaccination for detecting antibody titres by ELISA, and intestinal tissues were collected at 0, 1, 3 and 5 weeks post-vaccination for measurement of IgA-positive cells and intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes by immunohistochemical and hematoxylin-eosin staining, respectively.

Result showed that antibody titres, IgA-positive cells and intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes were significantly higher in chickens drinking GSLS than the control, suggesting an enhanced effect of GSLS on humoral and gut mucosal immune responses.

In Experiment 2, chickens were delivered with GSLS and then vaccinated in the same way as in Experiment 1. The birds were challenged with virulent IBDV at three weeks post-vaccination. Then the birds were weighed, bled and necropsied on day 3 post-challenge and the bursae were sampled for gross and histopathological examination.

Results demonstrated that GSLS provided a better protection against virulent IBDV challenge following vaccination than the control.

Zhai and colleagues concluded that oral administration of GSLS enhances both humoral and gut mucosal immune responses to IBDV and offers a better protection against virulent IBDV challenge.

They added that, considering its immunomodulatory properties to IBDV vaccine, GSLS might be a promising oral adjuvant for vaccination against infectious diseases in poultry.

royal gray broiler

Buy Ginger Broiler

Our Royal is a colored meat bird similar to the Imperial Red broiler. However, it grows faster and its confirmation includes larger breast portions with smaller leg portions, compared with the Imperial.

This broiler grows at a moderate rate and achieves a live weight of approximately 5.75 pounds in 9 weeks on 13.5 pounds of feed (FCR 2.35). Day-old chicks are available as red broilers, grey broilers, or mixed broilers and can be ordered as a straight run or cockerels (males) only. Fertile eggs for our colored broiler can also be ordered for hatcheries or family farms.

White broiler chicken

The White Broiler or White Cornish Cross are the fastest-growing meat chickens and are the ones used in the commercial broiler industry, producing the chicken one would buy at the grocery store. They are super-efficient growers, consuming about 14 pounds of feed per bird to reach 5-6 pounds at 6-7 weeks of age.

Cornish Rock vs Cornish Cross

The original Cornish cross chickens were a cross between a Cornish chicken and a white rock chicken. They are also called “Cornish Rock cross” or “Cornish Rock” chickens. Those first chicks grew so fast and so heavy that farmers began to breed selectively for those traits.
