Ark Of Taste

  1. 1. Ark of Taste<br />Yurlov rich-voiced chicken<br />Jake Silani<br />
  2. 2. In Soviet Russia, chicken eat you!<br />The biggest chicken’s breed in the world. The live weight of hens is 5-7 kg, of females – 3,5 – 4,5 kg. These chickens produce 120-130 eggs per year. The weight of eggs is the biggest in the world among the hens – up to 90 grams.<br />
  3. 3. Why they almost dissapeared<br />Out of the 33 farms who had these chickens, only 1 of these farms had chickens with different strands of DNA. In other words it was not a diverse enough species to last, even domestically. Until Dr. Steven Weingard researched, studied and then spread out that group to increase its diversity, the population was at a standstill. <br />
  4. 4. They’ve got the rhythm<br />The breeding is made in order to select the animals according to the duration of song (these chickens can sing up to 25 seconds) and timbre of voice (there are tenor, baritone and bass)<br />The attention to the singing ability develops chicken’s lungs and this condition implies a high blood oxygenation. Therefore the meat has no fat, its color is garish pink and there is no fat under the skin<br />
  5. 5. Where are they from?<br />The breed has 200-300 years history of selection. It was bred in several Central-Chernosemny Regions: Orlov, Kursk, Tambov and Lipetsk. The breed has following characteristic feature: high viability, high capability of great endurance and adaptability to severe climatic conditions.<br />
  6. 6. A good recovery<br />According to the USSR Central Statistic Administration, there were only 200 Yurlov chickens registered in the entire Soviet Union by 1985<br />The current population of the Yurlov Crower chickens in Russia and Ukraine may be several thousands and increasing including both state farms and fanciers, thanks to selective farming and conservational farming<br />
