Rhode Island Reds
Rhode Island Reds are an old dual-purpose homestead standby known for their excellent production of large brown eggs. This is a hardy, vital, prolific laying strain that reaches the true heritage Rhode Island Red size. Great start for a sustainable home chicken flock for egg and meat production.
Our Rhode Island Red hens lay 250+ large dark brown eggs a year. Young roosters from our flock dress out at 5 lbs. at five months old. Our birds are vigorous and are excellent foragers. This is a quality strain that will also perform well in 4-H or FFA.
Hens readily go broody and are exceptional mothers. Rhodie hens are extremely friendly and make good pets, too. We breed Rhodies for good temperament and do not retain aggressive cocks.
