Also known as the “Rhodie” the Rhode Is­land is well known for its strong ma­hogany red plumage and brick-like shape. The breed was orig­i­nally de­vel­oped with a rose comb. How­ever, it is more of­ten seen to­day with a sin­gle comb, both types be­ing ac­cept­able un­der the poul­try stan­dards for the breed. It is a re­li­able layer that also has the abil­ity to pro­vide suit­able ta­ble qual­i­ties. There is also a white plumage ver­sion known as the Rhode Is­land White but this is in­fre­quently seen these days.
