White Plymouth Rock Chicken Breed Information and Chicken Facts
*Heritage Breed

White Plymouth Rock Chicken Breed Information:

The White Plymouth Rock Chicken was recognized as a distinct chicken breed and admitted to the American Standard of Perfection as a pure breed chicken in 1888. The White Plymouth Rock Chicken is a good dual purpose chicken, a good pet chicken, a member of the Plymouth Rock family and known by their short name as a white rock chicken. A great American poultry heritage chicken breed that grandma and grandpa would have on the farm. They lay large to extra large brown eggs and the cockerels make very good fryers.  White Rocks hens have similar characteristics as the Barred Rocks, except they are pure white in color.  They are graceful, inquisitive, friendly and easy to manage. White Rocks hens are not as popular as the barred rocks, they have soft feathers and a dawn like undercoat, making them very cold hardy.  White Rocks are  great chickens to have in a backyard flock. . White rocks hens start laying eggs on average at about 5 months after hatching and are among some earliest maturing laying hens. White Rock hens like most laying hens will go through a period of chicken feather moulting, usually after laying for several months. During the moulting period the hens won't lay eggs and their pelvic bones will become not as wide. They may lose feathers and get pretty rough looking. Their faces will turn from a bright red to a pale pinkish color and  it may take several weeks ( 4-8 weeks) to be done with the moulting. When their face, comb and wattles become red again and the hens begin to sing you will know they are about to resume laying eggs. The white rock chicken continues to be uses as the female breeding side of the commercial Cornish broiler cross chicken. Cackle Hatchery offers this great dual purpose pedigree white rock chicken for sale and hope you consider adding this great heritage breed chicken to your backyard chicken flock.
