    I am a relatively new (4th year) chicken raiser in Virginia who is trying to breed my small flock of RIR's back to the original beed look I saw on my grandad's farm as a kid. I've had some success so far but am now in need of a "true to breed" rooster to continue. Can anyone direct me to where I might obtain a heritage RIR rooster pullet?

    I will have some this coming season. The cockerel I retained from my breeding pens this year is a rose comb. Are you wanting production/hatchery Reds or standard bred?

    If you're looking for standard bred I sugary you go to The Heritage Rhode Island Red Thread
