White Rock

$2.25$3.75

White Rock chickens are outstanding for egg production the entire year.   White Rocks are especially desirable through the cold winter months when lighter breeds slack off.  They lay a brown egg of fine quality and size.  The rapid growth, white, easy-to- dress feathers, and golden yellow skin of the cockerels of our strain make them equally desirable.   White Rocks are just as productive as their Barred cousins and are as brilliant white as fresh snow.  Raise some for eggs or meat.

Description

White Rock chickens are outstanding for egg production the entire year.   A great American poultry heritage chicken breed.  The White Plymouth Rock chicken is a good dual purpose chicken, a good pet chicken, a member of the Plymouth Rock family and known by their short name as a white rock chicken.  White Rocks are just as productive as their Barred cousins and are as brilliant white as fresh snow.   White Rocks are especially desirable through the cold winter months when lighter breeds slack off.   They lay large to extra large brown eggs.

As chicks, however the chick fuzz can be white to all shades of dark smoky color turning to white feathers as new juvenile feathers emerge.  As adults they will have yellow legs, however as young chicks and juvenile chickens some will have darker leg color.  They are graceful, inquisitive, friendly and easy to manage.  White Rocks hens are not as popular as the Barred Rocks, they have soft feathers and a dawn like undercoat, making them very cold hardy.  They are great chickens to have in a backyard flock.

The White Rock hens start laying eggs on average at about 5 months after hatching and are among some of the earliest maturing laying hens.  White Rock hens, like most laying hens, will go through a period of chicken feather molting, usually after laying for several months.  During the molting period the hens won’t lay eggs and their pelvic bones will become not as wide.  They may lose feathers and get pretty rough looking.  Their faces will turn from a bright red to a pale pinkish color and it may take several weeks (4-8 weeks) to be done with the molting.  When their face, comb and wattles become red again and the hens begin to sing you will know they are about to resume laying eggs.

The White Rock chicken continues to be used as the female breeding side of the commercial Cornish Broiler Cross chicken.  The rapid growth, white, easy-to- dress feathers, and golden yellow skin of the males make them equally desirable.  Roosters can be processed around 15-20 weeks.   Raise some for eggs or meat.
