    The Rhode Island Red is a breed of chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus). They are a utility bird, raised for meat and eggs, and also as show birds. They are a popular choice for backyard flocks because of their egg laying abilities and hardiness. Non-industrial strains of the Rhode Island Red are listed as recovering by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. Three vital variations appeared to have had the largest impact around the Rhode Island Red: Asiatics, Game, and Mediterranean

    "This is a good chicken for families, farmers,..."
    Pros - This Chicken is very beautiful, and they are fairly good egg layers. These chickens will be tame as long as you are very close to your chickens.
    Cons - Rhode island Reds are not high production egg layers.Roosters can often be harmful to children, especially if there is more than one rooster.
    Great Chicken for anyone just looking for an average size chicken. These are great also for the meat chicken lovers. These, once they stop laying are a dual purpose bird.
