Other common names: Ampokc

The basics:
The Amrock chicken was created in the United States, and has the same ancestry as the Barred Plymouth Rock. After, World War II, most of Germany’s birds had been consumed. The United States sent Amrocks to help provide German citizens with meat and eggs. Consequently, the breed has become popular throughout Europe, but is almost unheard of in the United States.

Types: Bantam and Largefowl
Varieties (Single Comb): Barred
Uses: Eggs and Meat
Weights:
Bantam: 900 - 1,000 grams
Largefowl: 6.5 - 9lbs

What else you should know:
The Amrock is an auto-sexing breed, meaning the genders can be told apart by their colors. Males will hatch lighter, with more white on their heads. As birds age the females will have wider black barring, and the males will have wider white barring.

Breeders and sellers have to jump through hoops to get RightPet listings, literally, we make them do circus tricks. Unfortunately no one has met our high acrobatic standards for this animal yet, but hopefully they will soon!

from shelters/rescues

We've had no luck finding any of these frisky fellas so far, even though we've put up wanted posters and everything! But don't worry, we're working on it!
