Rhode Island Whites

A Rose Comb Rhode Island White male

First offered to the public in 1903, RI Whites were admitted to the APA Standard in 1922. They carry the blood of Partridge Cochins, White Wyandottes and Rose Comb White Leghorns. The Whites should have the same distinctive horizontal oblong body carriage as the RI Reds. These fowl should only have rose combs.

This is a dual purpose breed with yellow skin and brown eggs.
