SEXING DAY-OLD CHICKS – Small and backyard poultry
A Rhode Island White does exist but is not well-known. Males of some strains can be aggressive during the breeding season. The Rhode Island Red has been used extensively over the years to create many of the commercial hybrid layers we see today. Owned by Jim Benson. They are one of the most well-known around the World due to their use in hybrid hen production. Originally, the Rhode Island Red was created as a dual purpose utility bird but their use in hybrid layer production far outweighs their popularity as a meat bird. Rhode Island Red hens will lay a good number of large light brown eggs which has made them the most popular choice in the UK and Europe to use in hybrid crosses for commercial egg production.
