Rhode Island White Chickens are adaptable, truly all-purpose chickens.  The creator of the Rhode Island chickens wanted the two breeds to be similar in body shape so they aren’t confused with the White Rocks.  They have blocky body figures that are deep and broad.  The males make great meat chickens due to their well-rounded breast meat.  This breed is known for its great egg laying through the winter and being very calm and docile birds.  Rhode Island White Chickens are hardy and even-tempered birds.  They are all white with bright red wattles and combs.  They have yellow legs and feet.  They do just fine in confinement as well as in free-range environments.

Description

Rhode Island White Chickens are hardy and even-tempered birds.  They are all white with bright red wattles and single combs. They have yellow legs and feet.

Rhode Island White Chickens are adaptable, truly all-purpose chickens.  Males and Females do just fine in confinement as well as in free-range environments.  They get along with other chickens. They are an overall great barnyard bird.

  • Production: Like their red counterparts, Rhode Island White Chickens are dependable and solid egg layers. One notable Rhode Island White Hen in Missouri has been recorded to have laid 306 eggs in one year.  Typical egg laying numbers are 240 to 250 eggs per year.  Eggs are brown. Rhode Island Whites are often recommended as winter-layers as they lay better than many other chickens during the short days of winter.  They do not tend to go broody.

Rhode Island White Chickens were also bred as meat birds.  They have deep, well-developed breast meat and mature quite early.  Their meat quality is considered excellent.

  • Temperament: The adaptability and easy going nature of the Rhode Island White makes these birds a solid choice for almost any farm or homestead.

The Chickens are shaped very similarly to Rhode Island Reds – they are sturdy and well-put-together with a longish-shaped, brick-like body. They have strong-looking heads with medium-sized wattles and a single combs. They do well in winter weather.
