About New Hampshire ChickensAbout New Hampshire Chickens



New Hampshire, or New Hampshire Red, chickens were developed to be quick with eggs and heavy with meat. They tend to produce quite a lot of brown eggs each year. They mature quickly, meaning they can be fattened up and cooked much sooner than other breeds.  

New Hampshire Reds are very easy to tame and are generally very friendly. They are laid back and content to just lay eggs and be raised for dinner. Despite being so relaxed, they are quite active and do well in a nice open space where they can run about and forage. When kept with their same breed, the issue of aggression doesn't generally come up.  

New Hampshire Reds are big birds with their distinctive red color with bluish or black feathers on the end of the tail. Their tail itself is fairly short but spread and carried rather well. They have medium-sized single red combs, red ear-lobes, red eyes, and yellow legs.  

New Hampshire Reds are very easy to keep as they don't need much. Being heavy birds they aren't really able to fly much, so a short fence is all you need to keep them contained. If you plan on raising hens for show, however, take note that when a young hen molts, her feathers will be a much more vibrant reddish brown. This color will fade under the influence of laying and sunlight, so if you plan on showing them with this specific color, add extra shade in their run and make sure to show them as soon as possible.
