The Rhode Island Red


THE RHODE ISLAND RED closely re sembles the White Wyandotte in gen eral form. While bred more particu larly for roasters and broilers they are equally as good layers as the Wyandotte. The color is a reddish buff, and there are both single and rose comb varieties. They are hardy and good layers and rapidly growing in popularity in New England. The Rhode Island Whites closely resemble the Wyandotte, both the Reds and Whites are a little smaller than the Plymouth Rock.
