Rhode Island Red

$2.25$3.75

Rhode Island Red Chickens are a popular dual-purpose breed that is a familiar standby in many chicken coops.  As the name suggests, this breed was developed in Rhode Island.   This is the state’s official bird!  Rhode Island Red hens are calm and are among the best layers.  Hens can lay around 200-250 large brown eggs annually.   Hens are rarely broody, so you’ll have to find someone else to sit their eggs.  Roosters may become aggressive.  Males and females are lovely shades of deep mahogany red.  They are hardy in all climates, and are an excellent free range choice.
