New Hampshires

The New Hampshire is an American Heritage chicken breed, named for the state where it originated. Developed by selecting the Rhode Island Red for rapid growth, fast-feathering, early maturity, and vigor, today the New Hampshire is its own breed. The New Hampshire is a medium chestnut red color — lighter than a Rhode Islands — with a single comb and yellow legs. These are hardy birds but, as with all single comb birds, care should be given to protect their combs in extreme cold temperatures. 

The New Hampshire was admitted to the Standard of Perfection by the American Poultry Association (APA) in 1935. 

Known for their deep, broad bodies, New Hampshires are often raised as a dual-purpose breed — as a medium-sized meat bird and one of the better brown egg laying breeds. 

Hens are moderately broody. They are good mothers to their young chicks, making them a good choice for those wanting a sustainable, Heritage flock.
