This popular breed is used in most crossbred varieties available today. Its bloodlines flow in most brown egg breeds throughout the world. Rhode Island Reds are a good producer of large brown eggs, and are quiet and easy to handle. Both male and female are dark red/brown in colour. Live weights are comparable to other dual purpose breeds.
NOTE: Barred Plymouth Rocks and Rhode Island Reds are more difficult to sex at day old, so only 90% accuracy is guaranteed on sexing (no sexing guarantees on orders under 30). If no males are desired, we suggest selecting other breeds
