The single comb Rhode Island Red Chicken (Exhibition Type) has the breed’s original large size and dark mahogany plumage. By way of contrast, a strain of production Rhode Island Reds was developed for more efficient egg production. However, accompanying the increased focus on laying was a reduced focus on appearance.
These Rhode Island Reds have the original rich color, blocky appearance, and docile nature. Admitted to the American Standard of Perfection in 1904, the Rhode Island Red Chicken (Exhibition Type) remains a showroom favorite and is often displayed on Champion Row.
