The noble Chicken is Rhode Island's State Bird!

Yep, remember that you read it here first. The Rhode Island Red chicken is Rhode Island's State Bird! These gentle and reliable cluckers lay brown eggs. To accompany yesterday's lush garden photos, here are some photos from the Community Food Bank's chicken coop.

At the top is a Rhode Island red & another chicken (not sure what breed it is). In the bottom photo note the chicken on the left. To cool off she clawed out a hollow in the straw and fluffed dust on her feathers. When she saw my camera I really think she was ready to say, "WHAT?"

This fun video is only about a minute long... check it out!
