Think Rhode Island Red roosters have a bad attitude? Think again! These boys are like big puppies. I have yet to hatch a man hater, or remotely challenged by one of these birds. No need to try to tame these, they are naturally easy to handle. If you like chickens that are under your feet, these are for you. Excellent layers of big, brown eggs. My birds came directly from Gary Underwood, a master breeder. This line has been in his family since 1914 with only 2 out crosses. They have a nice, straight back, good leg color and the red extender gene that makes them very dark. We have excellent hatches here on the farm, as we are sure you will as well. There is no guarantee expressed or implied here. Our shipping methods have proven successful. Each egg is individually wrapped in bubble wrap, set air cell up in a well cushioned box. I mark " perishable" on the shipping box unless otherwise requested. Feel free to check out our website to see if you would like to add any other breeds to your order. We would be happy to combine shipping on up to 3 dozen eggs.
