    I hear they are a great breed of chicken! We got some Red Pullets from TSC and I can only assume They are Rhode island Reds but they aren't grown yet barely even have in their wing feathers! But I would like to know some things about them.. Are they friendly Chicks Do they like to be around other breeds of birds Do you own any? If so How has your life fared with them? Anyway thanks for reading! (I really hope i posted this in the right place)

    I added 1 RIR and 2 leghorns to our flock last year, along with a few other breeds. They are egg laying machines! By far better than our BA's, EEs, BR, and even our Gold Sex Link. I'll be adding 3 more RIRs and 3 Leghorns this year. They also started laying earlier than any of our other chickens. The RIR gives us 1 large, very deep brown egg almost every day.
    They don't seem any more or less friendly then our other hens, and are not aggressive towards other chickens.
