Are you thinking about getting a Rhode Island Red? How about trying a New Hampshire Red instead? This is a very handsome red bird. They look similar to a Rhode Island Red, but a little larger with a smaller comb-developed for cold New Hampshire winters. These are nice, calm, red hens that will sit in your lap. They are non aggressive and good layers of light brown eggs. This American heavy is winter hardy and a great triple-purpose bird.
