Rhode Island Red

 

Pullets (Female)

The Rhode Island Red is an Standard, American breed of chicken. It is a utility bird, raised for meat and eggs, and also as a show bird. It is a popular choice for backyard flocks because of its egg laying abilities and hardiness. Non-industrial strains of the Rhode Island Red are listed as "recovering" by The Livestock Conservancy. The Rhode Island Red is the state bird of Rhode Island. It is one of only three state birds that is not a species native to the United States. Once she begins laying, she should produce 250 to 300 eggs per year – except during the cold, dark hours of winter when she may not lay at all -- until her first molt a year later.
