The hybrid crosses of the Pure line birds bred under moderate and controlled climates and imported in to India as grand parents and multiplied further are available in India. These birds are accepted world over. The breeding companies also provide technical services. They advise the best feed formula and controlled climate under which excellent results are achieved.

India has pure line breeding programs and they are successful in developing hybrid birds that suit their climate and the market. The breeding work is under taken in open sided houses and with ordinary feed. 80 per cent of layer stocks and 60 per cent broiler stocks purchased by farmers in India are from Indian bred birds.

The breeding work under practical conditions, where the birds have to perform is found to have resulted in building up of "Adaptability" which is described in terms of 1.Temperature tolerance and 2. Acceptance of lower quality feed.

A trial was conducted on the commercial hybrids of two imported and two Indian bred birds under two feed regimes. One, the modern well formulated quality feed fed under phase feeding (HE) and the second, a two stage starter and growing mash feeding system which is common in India(LE). To summarize the data, the average of two breeds of same origin are averaged and presented. The variation among the two similar groups is found to be not much.
