Rhode Island Red

Rhode Island Red

They were originally bred in Adamsville, Rhode Island in the USA in the 1890s by crossing breeds such as Buff Cochin, Langsh, Black Red Malay and rose-combed Leghorns. They are known for both the quality of eggs and their meat. A rust-coloured bird, it is an alert and heavy breed which enjoys foraging and they make excellent pets.
