    If anyone can shed a little light here, it would be appreciated. There are a few hatcheries that say they have Rhode Island Whites, but they are the 'single comb' variety. A true RIW will have a 'rose comb', and thats why I am posting here to see if anyone can give me some direction. We probably will not be able to purchase any birds at this time, so there is no rush. My wife and I would like to make note of who does, so that when the time comes, we'll be ready. Thank you.

    I think Urch and Sand Hill both have rose comb Rhode Island White. Stromberg's also has them listed (though not specified as rose comb) in their "show quality" section--which I think are Urch birds.
