Potch Koekkoek

The Potchefstroom Koekoek is a South African breed of chicken developed in the 1960s at the Potchefstroom Agricultural College by Chris Marais. It was developed by cross breeding a number of other breeds like Black Australorp, White Leghorn, and Barred Plymouth Rock to obtain specific characteristics of each, making the resulting breed more suitable to South African conditions.
The breed was intended as a dual purpose, free ranging chicken with excellent laying capabilities as well as a large structure for meat production.
Please place order to ensure supply. Younger than 4 weeks need infrared lighting
