Understanding Rhode Island Red Chickens:

Originating from the United States in the late 19th century, Rhode Island Reds have earned their reputation as one of the most beloved and recognizable chicken breeds worldwide. Renowned for their striking mahogany-colored plumage and robust build, these birds embody both beauty and utility. Their dual-purpose nature makes them a favorite among backyard flock owners and commercial farmers alike, excelling in both egg production and meat quality.

The originators of the Rhode Island Red wanted to create a bird that could lay a good number of eggs yet dress out nicely as a table bird. These birds are very good layers of brown eggs, perhaps the best layers of all of the dual-purpose breeds. They can lay 200 – 300 eggs a year starting as early as six months of age. Since the 1940’s, the Rhode Island Red has been selectively bred for more efficient egg production, becoming smaller, lighter colored, and less broody as a result. Of greatest conservation interest are the “old-type” Rhode Island Reds which are larger, darker, and more broody. These birds are becoming rare as the breed is “improved” to meet industry needs. Bresse Star Chick Hatchery is breeding Old type as well as breeding the modern type with the old type to help bring back the beautiful deep rich Mahogany color and a little larger bird than the modern type.  

Characteristics of Champion Rhode Island Reds:

Rhode Island Reds are prolific layers, consistently producing large, brown eggs prized for their rich flavor and nutritional value. With proper care and nutrition, hens from champion bloodlines can yield 200 -300 eggs per year, making them an invaluable asset for egg-centric operations.

2. Robust Constitution:

Champion Bloodline Rhode Island Reds are bred for resilience and adaptability, thriving in various climates and environments. Their sturdy build and hardy constitution make them well-suited for free-range systems or confinement, ensuring optimal performance and longevity. Rhode Island Red Chickens are known for being less proned to Diseases. Which is very nice ! 

3. Dual-Purpose Excellence:

In addition to their egg-laying prowess, Rhode Island Reds also excel as meat birds, boasting flavorful, succulent meat prized by culinary enthusiasts. Their ample breast meat and firm texture make them a preferred choice for home cooks and chefs seeking quality poultry products.

Why Choose Champion Bloodline Rhode Island Red Chicks:

1. Heritage and Pedigree:

Originally developed in Massachusetts and Rhode Island in the 1880’s and 1890’s, its ancestors include Malay (hence the deep color), Shanghai, Java, and Brown Leghorn chickens. Its distinctive color and good production qualities helped it to spread rapidly. Over the years most lines of the Rhode Island Red have been bred towards more of the Brown egg laying capablities and have lost alot of the Deep Rich Mahogany color. They are more of a lighter Red and smaller in size than the deep heritage line. We have our main Rooster who is from this deep Heritage line with the deep mahogany color and large statue. We have a few hens with this same breeding and we have the more modern Rhode Island Reds that are smaller and lighter red in color. The modern RIR also lay more eggs and the eggs are very large in size usually. We are crossing these lines to hopefully give you the best of both lines.
