You want Rhode Islands? Great choice! Rhode Island chickens are great for beginner flock owners and favorites of experienced farm hands! They are an excellent dual purpose bird providing you with reliable egg laying while being heavy enough for meat production as well. Your Rhode Islands will be one of the more forgiving breeds to raise since they are able to provide consistent egg production despite imperfect diets or conditions. Rhode Island Reds are a great breed for the small flock owner and will help beginners learn to raise chickens!
Your Rhode Island Red chickens will be a light rust color although some older heritage lines can be a dark maroon. Your chicks will start off very light and change color as they get older.
Rhode Island Reds will lay approximately 150 – 200 brown eggs the first laying season and will decline slightly every year after.
Roosters will weigh 8.5 lbs and hens will weigh 6.5 lbs (approximate).
These are an American breed since they were developed in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Hens’ docile temperaments make these chickens ideal farm companions and favorite pets for children. Rhode Island Red Roosters can be a bit feisty though.
Pick the hatch date, whether you want vaccinations or not (not available on every breed), then add the chicks to your cart. Checkout using PayPal or any major credit card. We have a minimum order of 15 chicks from April 1 - October 31 and 25 chicks from November 1 to March 31. We put more chicks in a box during colder weather to keep them warm during shipping.
Once the order is complete we receive your order and schedule it for your preferred hatch date. If we can’t fit it in our schedule for whatever reason on the date you selected, we’ll let you know.
Once the order has shipped we will mark your order complete and attach the tracking # to your order. You should get an email with confirming the order is complete.
The chicks typically take 1 - 2 days after they have hatched to reach your local post office. The post office should call you when the chicks arrive.
Wait for the call from your local post office. Typically USPS will ship the chicks to the post office associated with your zip code but occasionally they may require you to pick the chicks up at a main hub - especially if the delivery is running behind schedule.
Pick up your chicks at your local post office.
Let us know if you have any issues with your order within 48 hours after the arrival of your chicks.
