New Hampshire Red Chicks

Originating from the state of New Hampshire, these chickens are very similar to the Rhode Island Reds, which were used in their development. However, the New Hampshire Red Chickens are a lighter buff-red color than the Rhode Islands and were selected for earlier maturing and their high production of large brown eggs. New Hampshire's were also selected for their meat quality and size, and are therefore a great dual-purpose breed. New Hampshire's are a common choice for crossing with other breeds to develop laying flocks. Hens are deep-bodied and usually calm. New Hampshire Reds can survive in cold climates, however, take care of their combs as they can be prone to frostbite in the harshest winter weather.
