Your Chickens - - Feature | Breeds -

A hardy breed that is well adapted to ex­tremes of cli­mate, the Rhode Is­land Red works well within an en­closed run but is equally ef­fec­tive as free rangers as they have good for­ag­ing skills. Young stock grows fast and pul­lets come into lay quickly with their first eggs be­ing laid at around 20 weeks of age. The com­bi­na­tion of their tem­per­a­ment, pro­duc­tion, and ease of care make them an ex­cel­lent breed for the begin­ner.
