Partridge Plymouth Rock


Beautiful Partridge HENS – LOCAL PICK UP!

Started Pullets! Great brown egg layers and great meat birds!


Plymouth Rock is one of Americas’ oldest breeds. The hen was seen from coast to coast before the end of World War 2, and it became the nation’s main source of chicken meat and eggs.

As a dual purpose hen, it excelled in good quality meat production and good egg production, the only hen that could rival it was the Rhode Island Red.

Almost everyone used to keep them; it was encouraged by the Government as the troops needed food to fight across the seas and for the home front.

They were encouraged and embraced by thousands of people during this time, but sadly, after they finished the War, the chicken industry became highly mechanized. Like so many other breeds, the Plymouth Rock was cast aside as not productive enough.
