Rhode Island Reds
I have a nice strain of A.P.A. Standard Bred single-comb standard Rhode Island Reds. These are very large dual-purpose birds, cocks weighing 8.5+ lbs. and hens 6.5+ lbs. Hens lay extra-large to jumbo glossy brown eggs. Cockerels dress out at 5+ lbs.
These are long, wide, deep-bodied birds with nice glossy mahogany plumage and yellow leg color that an A.P.A. poultry judge noted was particularly good in the flock. Great for showing. Hens readily go broody and are very good mothers. I breed Rhodies for good temperament and do not retain aggressive cocks. Rhodie hens are extremely friendly and make good pets, too.
Please see the price list below. If you are interested in chicks, please contact me. I often have chicks available, but may also set special hatches if necessary.
Sometimes I have a limited number of adults and adolescents available as well. They are will be posted on this page when they become available, or you can ask to be placed on an email availability notification list by going to "Contact."
