Originating in 1888, the Rosecomb variety of the Rhode Island White was admitted to the APA in 1922. We offer the Single comb variety. The White has a broad, deep body with horizontal carriage, close tightly feathered brick- like appearance, with a broad flat head. Great winter layer of rich brown eggs, very docile and good dual layer/ meat fowl.
They are known as a dual purpose breed but because of their rapid growth and large carcass they are often used for meat. They have yellow skin, lay brown eggs and frequently go broody.
