    I went to a local farm yesterday and bought a chicken that he called a rainbow chicken. Anyone know what breed he is talking about. I have never heard of it. Kind of looks like a Rhode Island Red

    Could it have been a Dixie Rainbow? They're a large dual purpose breed with emphasis on meat production. Most Dixie hens appear varying shades of red with some barring.
