New Hampshire Red

$3.15$4.65

New Hampshire Red chickens originated from the state of New Hampshire, these chickens are very similar to the Rhode Island Reds, which were used in their development.  However, the New Hampshire Red Chickens are a lighter red color than the Rhode Islands.  They are selected for earlier maturing and their high production of large brown eggs.  They are also selected for their meat quality and size, and are therefore a great dual-purpose breed.  New Hampshire Red chickens are a common choice for crossing with other breeds to develop laying flocks.  Hens are deep-bodied and usually calm. New Hampshire Reds can survive in cold climates, however, take care of their combs as they can be prone to frostbite in the harshest winter weather.
