Sponsor a Rhode Island Red Egg

Did you know that the South County Museum has two different varieties of Rhode Island Red chickens, single comb and rose comb? You don’t need to be a farmer to notice the difference in the comb, the row of red spikes on a chicken’s head.

Single combs, as the name suggests, consist of a single straight row of spikes. Rose combs are flat and close to the bird’s head. South County Museum’s heritage flock includes both varieties of Rhode Island’s state bird. You can support the care of the flock by becoming an egg sponsor. Your $50 donation includes a chance to name an egg, we will tag it, and send you a personalized message when it hatches!

Your donation includes: naming your egg, a message when your egg starts to hatch, free family membership, free admission on April 3rd’s Spring Family Fun Day, and a cuddly stuffed animal chick!
