Rhode Island Red Started Pullets
A Rhode Island Red has a lustrous rich dark mahogany red with a dark tail. These pullets are one of the best dual-purpose breeds and a super choice for back-yard flocks. The birds are hardy and do excellent in a free range operation though they will also do well in confinement. They are a wonderful choice for production of large brown eggs at around 24 weeks of age. All have been fully vaccinated.
When this foundation breed matures, hens should weigh approximately 5 pounds. These birds are not debeaked but are free-ranged on grass for health and vitality.
