Years later an ideal backyard chicken breed was named in honor of this famous site. They link the flock owner with American history while yielding abundant eggs and tasty meat. In bygone days when nearly every farm had a chicken flock the utility and beauty of these birds made them the breed of choice. Few birds are as stunningly real as a Plymouth Rock strolling across a summer lawn. With a New England heritage, they don't let January's blizzards interrupt laying.

Black Australorp

Starting at: $2.66
First avail: Jul 22, 2020

The Australorp, an Australian breed, was selected for its high egg production, and was developed primarily from Black Orpingtons that were exported from England in the 1890s to early 1900. Australian breeders selected these large Black Orpingtons because of their efficient egg production and Orpington shape. Today, the Australorp is still a favorite egg producer in small and backyard flocks. Despite their record-breaking egg production, they are still considered a dual-purpose breed that grows at a good rate and has a well-fleshed carcass. The plumage is pure black with an intense beetle-green sheen that is breathtaking when seen in the sunlight. Their legs and toes are also black while the bottoms of the feet are white. APPROX. 250 LARGE EGGS/YEAR | EGG COLOR: BROWN | MATURE WT: MALE 8 LBS. FEMALE 6.5 LBS.

New Hampshire Red

Starting at: $2.66
First avail: Jul 22, 2020

New Hampshire Red poultry breeders likely envied Rhode Island for having a chicken breed named for their state.

New Hampshire Red pullets sport light rusty red feathers and lay about 240 eggs each year. APPROX. 240 MEDIUM EGGS/YEAR | EGG COLOR: BROWN | MATURE WT: MALE 6.5 LBS. FEMALE 6.5 LBS.

Black Jersey Giant

Starting at: $2.66
First avail: Jul 22, 2020

In the late 1800's New Jersey breeders created a chicken designed to rival the meatiness of the turkeys back then. The massive Black Jersey Giant was the result of merging the genetics of several large breeds. Later the White Jersey Giant was created. They grow slowly but eventually are a third larger than most other heavy breeds. These birds are ideal for anyone wanting an impressive hen that lays about 240 extra-large eggs annually. When younger, the birds will mature relatively quick, but they tend to reach a marketable meat weight slower than other breeds. It can take up to 9 months for this bird to fill out its meat proportions. APPROX 240 X-LARGE EGGS/YEAR |EGG COLOR: BROWN | MATURE WT: MALE 11 LBS. FEMALE 9 LBS.
