Classification

Soft feather – heavy

Appearance

Various shades of red with some black. There is also a white feathered Rhode Island (white is however very rare).

The red variety is capable of producing 200- 250 large eggs annually, however the cock is very aggressive. This must be taken into account before choosing this particular breed as a pet or mixing it with other varieties. The Rhode Island has yellow shanks and performs well under most conditions and rarely goes broody.
