Rhode Island Red Chickens are a popular dual-purpose breed that is a familiar standby in many chicken coops. As the name suggests, this breed was developed in Rhode Island, and is the state's official bird! Rhode Island Red hens are calm and are among the best layers for a heavy breed. Hens can lay around 200-250 large brown eggs annually, but rarely brood, so you'll have to find someone else to sit. Roosters may become aggressive. Males and females are lovely shades of deep mahogany red, are hardy in all climates, and are an excellent free range choice.
Rhode Island Reds mature early, with an average mature rooster weight of 7 to 71/2 lbs and hens reaching 6 lbs.
