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.

Bantam: 900 - 1,000 grams

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.
