 The Rhode Island was developed in Rhode Island & Massachusetts, USA and is a very popular breed consisting of 2 variations in colour, Red and White.  The Red is by far the most popular and is a very hardy breed of fowl being able to cope well in both temperature ectremes.

 

Rhode Island Reds are a true dual purpose bird, however they are mainly kept for their egg laying capacity, which is in the area of 250+ eggs per year.

 

They are a fairly quiet and friendly breed, although they can be the dominant fowl in the pen, they make good mothers, caring for their chicks quite well.
