Rearer Johan Keurhorst about the NOVOgen Brown Classic:
“It’s a calm hen. She has a nice dark colour and is well distributed over the system."
Rearer Theo van Steeg about the NOVOgen Brown Light:
"The hens look good. Robust and large. They have good feathering. The barn is full of down feathers. They take to the perch quietly, but they do want to go up. They are the ideal hens."
Poultry farmer Kees Mastenbroek about the NOVOgen Brown Light:
“The hens are very quiet right from the start. The Novogen hen is bred for its behaviour. And that's noticeable in the barn. The nesting behaviour is excellent. Few eggs are laid on the ground. The hens spread well throughout the barn. The Novogen is a fine, calm hen with lovely eggs."
Poultry farmer Cor Manders from Volkel about the NOVOgen White:
"Beautiful eggs, big full hens yet efficient in the feed conversion. The feathering is good and so is their weight development. Limited losses and hardly any eggs laid on the ground. The hens are always quiet, they've really been bred for that. Normal white hens are more wild, which results in more losses."
Poultry farmer Kees Daemen from Luyksgestel about the NOVOgen Brown Light:
"You know straight away on unloading them; this is a completely different hen. Little weight deviation and nice full hens. The egg weight soon increases, the hen does well and lays good eggs.
Poultry farmer Marc van Gils about the NOVOgen Brown Light:
"They're lovely uniform hens. The Novogen is a nice calm hen."
Sales manager Dough Kirkby of Tom Barron Limited about the NOVOgen Brown Classic:
"The breeding went well, without problems, and it's striking that the Novogen hens easily adjust when moved from the raising to the laying company. They keep their appetite and come up to bodyweight very soon after transfer. The hens behave very calmly, but they are certainly not lazy! Even if you slow them down before the start of the laying curve in order to increase the egg weights, they still come to lay very easily and reach the peak at target age without any problems. Peaks are between 95 and 97%, losses are very low and the quality of the eggs is very good."
