    Breed Information, Comments, and Experience with breed:

    We purchased a Rhode Island Red "pullet" from a bin. Unfortunately, our pullet was a cockerel. This series may help you to decide if yours is a cockerel or pullet. Rose the RIR is a production RIR and not show quality. He was handled every day that we owned him and was a fantastic bird. To this day, his new owners and their children still handle him. My experience with this breed was wonderful and Rose was almost like a dog. Followed us around, came to his name and was quite docile.

    This was the day we bought him. My guess is 3 days old.​

    His comb is becoming more prominent and well as he is starting to get the "rooster-look"​

    He started crowing shortly after this was taken. You can see the green tail feathers and saddle feathers. He is really red in the comb and waddles too.​

    Rose turned into quite the beautiful gentleman! A true Rhode Island Red is a darker red color. You can see that Rose is a hatchery chicken by his color. But he is still beautiful!​
