Rhode island red
By A.G

The Rhode island red is one of the most popular chicken breeds. Their are two types of RIRss ( Rhode island reds) Production and heritage. The production will lay more with 250-300 eggs per year but often have vent and strain related problems and can get a stuck egg and die at 3 years. The Heritage don't lay as much as the production. They lay 150-250 eggs per year but lay eggs longer and don't get as many vent problems. RIRs aren't very laid back and are known to dominate shyer breeds. RIRs aren't very friendly to other chickens but extremely docile to humans. RIRs are great fighters ( my RIR hen beat three other hens in a free for all two of them were very angry mixed bantams one was a very mean barred rock). RIRs have been around for 100 or so years. They are a dark red color, they may have black on tail or wings this is called “ smutty “ and show birds would get points docked for this. RIRs are very good in mixs. They can be noisey sometimes espiically their “loud and proud” egg cluck.
