White Plymouth Rock chickens are an outstanding dual purpose heritage breed known for both its high-quality meat and eggs. White Plymouth Rocks are especially desirable because they have soft feathers and a dawn like undercoat, making them very cold hardy. Females mature earlier than most heritage breeds and lay lots of large brown eggs. The rapid growth, white, easy-to- dress feathers, and golden, yellow skin of the males make them very desirable. White Plymouth Rock females are just as productive as their Barred cousins but are vibrant white in color. They are calm, inquisitive, friendly making them a great chicken for your backyard flock. Females tend to go broody, will sit, hatch, and raise their own chicks. White Plymouth Rock chicks are smoky, light, yellow have single combs and clean, black or gray legs and feet. Adult White Rocks have white feathers, yellow skin, legs and beak, with a red comb and wattles. White Plymouth Rock females are used in the Cornish x Rock crosses that were developed for meat production.
