Rhode Island may be America's smallest state but the breed developed there in the late 1800s made huge changes in chicken husbandry. The Rhode Island Red's amazing ability to lay about 265 eggs a year made it famous worldwide and became the parent of several modern hybrid egg layers. These glossy mahogany- colored hens with black tail feathers are as beautiful as they are gentle and productive.
