Rhode Island Reds
The Rhode Island Red is an old homestead standby renowned as one of the best chickens for egg laying. They are a hardy, dual-purpose breed for eggs and meat. 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 very vital and excellent foragers. They are an excellent choice if you are looking for a true heritage chicken for the sustainable production of eggs and meat. This is a quality strain that will also do well in 4-H or FFA.
Hens readily go broody and are very good mothers. Rhodie hens are extremely friendly and make good pets, too. We breed Rhodies for good temperament and do not retain aggressive cocks.
