Rockadoodle Barred Plymouth Rock

Big Softie

Rockadoodle is one of the biggest roosters at Shepperly, but he's also the most gentle. Don't let his size fool you- he's docile and calm and always ready for a pet. Majestic is another good description of Rockadoodle- he is a beautiful bird and has a very attractive color combination of feathers.

Shepperly Farm Fun Facts

Barred Plymouth Rocks, also known as Rocks or Barred Rocks, originated in New England in the middle of the 19th century.

Barred Plymouth Rock chickens are very hardy. This means they can easily tolerate very cold temperatures. Barred Plymouth Rock chickens can tolerate high temperatures outdoors as well.

They are typically known to be friendly and docile birds, but have also been known to bully other chickens. 

Coming in a variety of colors, Barred Plymouth Rock hens are known to be great mothers and lay about 4 eggs per week. 

These birds are the perfect variety for a backyard breed. They will do well in a more small, confined space as well as a more free range environment.

They are a large breed, reaching up to 8 pounds in some cases. 

There are many different types of Plymouth Rock breeds, a lot of them very rare. The most common types are Barred and White.
