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.

Baby chicks July 2, 2015
Reviewer: tommy tomlin from kennedy, AL United States  
Chicks arrived at post office in Kennedy Al healthy and ready to come home. They immediately began to scratch and peck the feed that was offered them. They are all growing and doing really well.

New chicks June 26, 2015
Reviewer: Rochelle Anderson from Friendship, WI United States  
This is my third order of chicks since 2013, I have NEVER received a dead bird in any shipment. They arrived a day earlier then expected, which just made me happier. The chicks are healthy, and I am a very satisfied customer and will only get my chicks from Efowl. Thank you all very much!

Rhode Island Reds June 21, 2015
Reviewer: William Orso from Gloster, MS United States  
Arrived as indicated by efowl but 1 day before USPS stated arrival.  Believe efowl over USPS.  Chickens arrived in good condition.  1 shipped over purchase amount to account for any shortcomings upon arrival.

Healthy Chicks June 17, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Hastings, MN United States  
The chicks arrived in good condition.  My order was shipped later in the week than I had originally wanted but I can understand with live animals things don't always go as planned.  This was my first experience with eFowl and they did a great job!

Excellent egg producer June 17, 2015
Reviewer: Rich K from Chino Valley, AZ United States  
I ordered these chickens because our neighbor said these are great egg producers. The pullets arrived in great condition and are healthy. They are growing very fast and are a friendly active bird.
