Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts - where the Pilgrims landed in To me, the rock looked really small but the top (visible) one-third of Plymouth Rock weighs approximately 4 tons so I guess it's not so small after all.
My future "pet". The Plymouth Barred Rock hen is often agreed to be the best backyard chicken. They are great egg layers and are cuddly and quiet. And no, you do not need a rooster for hens to lay eggs.
