BYC does a breed focus every couple of weeks on a different breed. Last month the breed focus was on the Rhode Island Red, it was interesting to read about members experiences with the breed and the difference between "true" RIR vs. production reds. You might like to read this since that's what you are going to have:
I've had 2 RIR's in my mixed flock and have been very pleased with them. Both with their temperament and their egg-laying ability. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine!
