Plymouth Rocks are one of the most classic American breeds. These birds are classic for a reason. They are hardy, perfect for cold climates, calm barnyard citizens, great egg producers, and fine table fowl. Plymouth Rocks are the archetypal heritage dual-purpose breed. The white variety of Plymouth Rock is a striking bird with pure white feathers, bright yellow legs, and bright red comb and wattles.

Production: White Plymouth Rocks lay large, medium-colored brown eggs and their rate of lay is around 200 eggs per year. They are also fast growers and produce tasty, high quality meat. The White Plymouth Rock is a great alternative heritage meat bird to the Cornish crosses; although these will take a bit longer to grow to full size, they won't have the leg and other developmental issues that the fast growing Cornish may have.

Temperament: Docile and friendly, White Plymouth Rocks are a good choice for a backyard flock. They are quiet and gentle flock members, not flighty, and get along with other animals and people. There is an inclination in some individuals to go broody; hens do make good mothers.

History: Plymouth Rocks were probably the most common American breed of chicken in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The original Plymouth Rock chicken originated in New England after the Civil War. The original Plymouth Rocks were of the barred color variety with the other colors, including the white, being developed later. The Plymouth Rock was consciously created as an American chicken, representing American farming ideals, and it was created purposely as a superior egg and meat chicken that was also winter-hardy. Some historians claim that the Rocks were the first breed bred as dual-purpose. White Plymouth Rocks were one of the foundation breeds for the Cornish-cross hybrids used today in the broiler industry.

Colors: These Plymouth Rocks are white with bright yellow legs and feet. They have yellow skin and light yellow eyes. Their bright red single comb has 5 upright points, with the points in the front and back of the comb being shorter than those in the middle. White Plymouth Rocks have bright red wattles and earlobes.
