Baby Chicks: New Hampshire Red
|Shipping Week||Availability||Other Breeds Available|
The New Hampshire Red chicken is a great addition to any chicken flock! They are good brown egg layers that are hardy in the heat and cold.
New Hampshire Reds are derived directly from Rhode Island Reds, and over the years they've changed so much from selective breeding that they've come to be recognized as a new breed. The New Hampshire Red differs from the Rhode Island in that it produces more meat (and therefore fewer eggs), it's faster to grow and feather out, it matures early, and it's even more vigorous. Due to its meat qualities, New Hampshire Reds are considered a good dual-purpose choice.
