Heritage Chickens

For the past 30 years, Egg Farmers of Alberta has been a proud sponsor and support of the Poultry Research Centre at the University of Alberta.  The PRC is a world-class facility that is home to some of the foremost poultry scientists and researchers in the world, who provide an invaluable service to the poultry industry in Alberta and across Canada.

One of the PRC’s most unique endeavors is their Heritage Chickens Adopt-a-Chicken program.  The heritage chicken flocks are a tremendous resource for poultry genetics, while the Adopt-a-Chicken program enables them to engage the public in a fun and informative way.
