The Rhode Island Reds are friendly chickens with a good nature.Rhode Island Reds are tough birds, resistant to illness, good at foraging and free ranging, and typically docile, quiet, and friendly. Although they are widely known as good layers through cold periods. They will come when called or when they can see their owner and will walk with them just as a dog would. Rhode Island Reds and their hybrid descendants will happily sit on their owner's lap, arms or even shoulders. These chickens care for each other as well, and often stay in a group. Rhode Island Reds are noted for their brown eggs. Although they can sometimes be stubborn, they can end up producing up to 200 eggs a year but a healthy one can lay more. When free ranged, their first year eggs can be too large to fit comfortably in standard or medium egg tray. Healthy hens can lay up to 6–7 eggs per week depending on their care and treatment. Rhode Island Red hens lay many more eggs than an average hen if provided plenty of quality feed.
