Rhode Island Red

Category: Chickens | Posted: Thu Oct 30, 2014 4:59 pm

We have two Rhode Island Red hens. I affectionately named them Lucy and Ethel. Lucy is the only one of our chickens that will actually let me touch her. She can be a little aggressive if some kind of treat is offered. In fact, my wife had some bread and she flew up and snatched a piece out out of her hand. It was a spectacular sight, but my wife was not impressed.

I read your blog entry to my Mom EG. From the photo she correctly guessed Rhode Island. I love their names :-)

Lucy looks like she is the queen of the yard, proudly strutting around!

I raised RIR`s years ago. A better chicken is hard to find.
