CHICKEN PROGRAM

BJE produces a range of breeds suitable for different sectors of the broiler market. This allows us to select the bird that best meets the needs of our customer’s particular operation.

We look for characteristics of commercial importance such as growth rate, feed conversion ratio (FCR), livability, and meat yield which are consistently improved with continued genetic advances being made in bird welfare, leg health, cardiovascular fitness, and robustness.

BJE Poultry specializes in being able to produce a wide variety of poultry with varying weight ranges to meet our customer’s needs.  We have over 30 years of experience in managing, servicing and growing the best lines of broilers the industry has to offer. We currently offer services for conventional and organic Cobb, Hubbard Ross and “Sasso” broilers.

The Ross 708 is used in both the conventional and organic programs at BJE Poultry because it is one of best producing meat yield birds while also keeping the cost component of feed efficient during production.

The Red Sasso Broiler or Red pullet, an acronym for Selection Avicole de la Sarthe et du Sud Ouet, is a major player in France’s chicken-breeding has become a mainstay in the live market industry which caters to immigrant communities and posh restaurants with very specific poultry-buying criteria. These criteria include slow grown, solid bone, long legs, and v-shaped breasts. We raised them without antibiotics, and vegetable proteins.  Several years ago, we began producing this line of bird in the United States with great success.
