New Hampshire poultry breeders likely envied Rhode Island for having a chicken breed named for their state. By the mid-1930s they had perfected a breed in the Granite State that grows a bit faster than the Rhode Island and was an important broiler breed until the era of modern hybrids. New Hampshire pullets sport light rusty red feathers and lay about 240 eggs each year.
