    You mean Rhode Island Reds? Yep there are out there.

    But if you are saying R I Rocks, I dont think there is one unless it was an outcross of RIR X Rock that the bird may have the red coloring.

    Is that a Rhode Island Red crossed with a Plymouth Rock?

    Thinking of the Red Rock Cross? Barred rock hens X RIR cocks. Male chicks have a black spot, girlies are solid black. Roosters grow up resembling a barred rock, while the hens are black with a reddish chest. Good dual purpose hybrid. [​IMG]
