The Rhode Island Red is America's best known chicken breed and possibly even the best known breed in the world. This is because the breed has so many fine qualities that they have remained popular ever since their introduction.

The breed originally developed in Rhode Island and Massachusetts in the 1880s and 1890s, and its ancestors include Malay, Shanghai, Java and Brown Leghorn. The Rhode Island Red's capacity to tolerate both cold or hot weather makes it the perfect bird for just about any location in the country. The hens are friendly and calm (although the roosters can be aggressive). Because this breed tends to be so healthy--and they are good layers and friendly pets to boot--some of our employees call these the "Do Everything Bird". If you aren't sure what breed to get, chances are that the dual purpose Rhode Island Red will meet your needs!
