    Plymouth Rocks are large, long-lived chickens. Some varieties are good layers while others are bred principally for meat. They possess a long, broad back; a moderately deep, full breast; and yellow skin and legs. The hens have a deep, full abdomen, which is a sign of a good layer. The face of a Plymouth Rock is red with red ear lobes, a bright yellow beak, bay-colored eyes, and a single comb of moderate size. Their feathers are fairly loosely held but not so long as to easily tangle.Plymouth Rocks lay a large egg that varies in color from light to medium brown with a touch of pink. The birds continue laying all through the winter with decreased production. The amount of eggs laid are dependent on the strains that your birds are from.mine are bred for egg laying my meat is from my mixes they lay really well to off topic i would recomend this breed becuase of its ability as a mother and layer and unlike many other breeds the roosters are extremly niceto order click here this breed can only be ordered through byc and hatching eggs can be ordered through the same link.
