Our Faculty has been dealing with the cross-breeding of Hungarian speckled hen to maintain the breed since 1977. We keep two breeds of the Hungarian speckled hen, the bare-neck variant and the feathered-neck type on the pilot farm. Because of the spread of intensive poultry keeping the population of these breeds has become endangered. Beside th
...e gene preservation, we endeavour to find the best way for the production-purpose utilisation of the speckled hen stock. We examined the egg production of these breeds.
