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.
