Rhode Island Red Chickens

The Rhode Island Red Chicken Breed boasts the title of America's most well known and popular chicken, though for many years the chicken breed was facing a critical decline in its breeding population. Thanks to many hobby hatcheries and backyard farmers the Rhode Island Red is now popular chickens among small farms and backyards today. Rhode Island Red Chicks grow to be one of the most productive and useful dual purpose breeds across the country and world today. They have prolific egg production, and they will dress nicely as a table bird.

The Rhode Island Red is also one of the most hardy of all dual purpose breeds, and they will thrive in almost any environment they could face in the United States. They have amenable dispositions and are a favorite among 4-H clubs and state fair competitions around the country. Their active disposition, hardy nature, and superb foraging ability helps them thrive in a free range environment as well.

Though the breed has become smaller over the last 60 years, they females still weigh over 6 pounds while the males over 8 pounds. The Rhode Island Red Hens are excellent winter egg layers due to their heavier size and hardiness, and they will generally lay between 200-300 per year - perhaps the best dual purpose egg layer in production today. The hens can become broody, though not as frequently as some other breeds like the Buff Orpington. Roosters can become aggressive, and it is generally best not to have more than one rooster for every 8 - 10 hens.

Rhode Island Red Chicks December 15, 2014
Reviewer: William Owens from Fort Mill, SC United States  
Hello,
I was very satisfied with the service and the delivery of the chicks. I'm not sure why, but 6 of them have died. I have monitored the temp very closely, kept them watered and fed. Perhaps they were over crowded for the first week. I didn't report the loss because it was probably my fault. In any case, I will be ordering more chicks as soon as I get a little age on these.
Thanks,
Tim Owens

Rhode Island Red chicks October 27, 2014
Reviewer: Sandra Wilson from Edgewood, NM United States  
I received an email later morning Oct 20th that my chicks had shipped. Less than 24 hrs later I received a call from my post office that they had arrived. I was very impressed with the speed of shipping and the condition in which they arrived. They were all happy and healthy. Thanks! I will definitely order from eFowl for my future backyard poultry needs.

Reviewer: Happy Dad of a 4-H Kid from Page, AZ United States  
This was our first purchase for a total of 15 chickens.
Absolutely everything went perfect.
The shipment arrived a day earlier than expected.
We received a total of 16 chickens.
The communication was excellent.
Thanks for an excellent shopping experience.
We will recommend efowl.com for sure. My daughter is in 4-H, so you might here from more people in Northern Arizona ordering chickens from you.
Thanks again,
a happy dad thanks to a super happy daughter. :-)
PS: All the chicks are in excellent health.
