Poultry of numerous breeds and populations, kept in the collection of the All-Russia Research Institute of Genetics and Livestock Breeding (VNIIGRZh), are carriers of autosexing genes, bright colouring of plumage, skin and egg-shell pigmentation, decorative and productive qualities. For this reason, hens and cocks are used for creation of Russian coloured crosses that are demanded in farmer (peasant) and personal part-time farms.
