Plymouth Rocks

A Barred Plymouth Rock hen

Barred Plymouth Rocks, often sold as Barred Rocks, are one of the most popular of the dual purpose breeds for backyard flocks. White Rocks are crossed with White Cornish to produce the Rock/Cornish hybrid that makes up most of the roasting chickens found in supermarkets.

Bantam Plymouth Rocks are also quite popular.
