The Great, All-American Rhode Island Red Chicken

Rhode Island Reds from our family of hatcheries are generally docile, friendly birds that can grow particularly tolerant of their handlers. They make superb additions to backyards, foraging and eating insects that bug you and your other animals. Their reliable egg laying and excellent meat production make them one of our best-selling breeds.

History of the Rhode Island Red Chicken

The Rhode Island Red chicken breed was first developed in New England during the late 19th Century. Selective breeding involving Red Malay Game, Cochin, Leghorns, Java, and Shanghai birds resulted in this all-American breed.

The Rhode Island Red’s Most Prized Features

A Rhode Island Red hen will produce between 250 and 300 medium to large, light-brown eggs per year. The Rhode Island Red chicken is treasured for its egg-laying aptitude and cold-hardiness, but it can also be used for its flavorful meat and as a show bird. Roosters weigh around 8.5 pounds, and hens reach approximately 6.5 pounds.
