Rhode Island Red
We just finished state reports at school. I love state report time. I have learned so much that I think everyone should go back and repeat 5th grade as an adult. It is so interesting....this time around. This year I was helping a boy with his report on Rhode Island and was surprised to learn that the Rhode Island Red is the state bird. They even have a monument.
I would have to agree that this is a pretty good chicken. We have two (really the neighbor's) that are my best layers. My second best are Black Stars which are Rhode Island Red crosses.
It's a state bird!
