This is one of my favorite breeds and is truly an American class hero. Developed in the early part of this century in the state of Rhode Island, they have maintained their reputation as a dual purpose fowl throughout the years.

This guy still has a lot of filling out to do in this picture but look at the type. He has the "Brick" shaped body. He also has a nice level back. His front, back and tail are all proportionate and his legs are centered with his back.
