Rhode Island Reds are often considered an American staple, when referring to poultry breeds. Arguably the most iconic and well recognized chicken breed in the US, the Rhode Island Red was developed and first bred in Rhode Island, and to this day is still the state bird of Rhode Island. This breed is typically active and, as it is a high production egg layerthat will lay around 280-290 large brown eggs per year. The Rhode Island Red is often variable in temperament. These birds will not breed true if crossed, and have been selectively bred to out perform other Rhode Island Red varieties.
Hens will typically reach 7 to 7.5 lbs and Roosters will reach a whopping 9.5 lbs. As such, the cockerels also make a good choice for meat production.
If you are looking for a high production bird, which lays a lot of brown eggs, and are also great foragers, these are the birds for you!
