    This breed was developed in the state of Rhode Island in the 1830s. The following breeds were used in their makeup, Malays, Cochins and Brown Leghorns. The single combed variety was admitted to the APA's Standard of Perfection in 1904 and the rose combed birds a year later. The cock will weigh about 8 1/2 pounds and the hens run about one pound lighter.
