The Rhodebar hens are exceptionally good layers and can produce about 180-250 light brown eggs in a year. At around the age of six months, they can already produce about 200 eggs during their first laying period.
What makes a Rhodebar chicken?
This breed is a quirky combination of British auto-sexing traits genetically engineered into a classic American chicken breed, the Rhode Island Red. The Rhodebar was created in England in 1947 by crossing a Brussbar (also a rare British chicken breed) with the Rhode Island Red.
