Amrock Chicken

Scientific name: Gallus gallus domesticus

Country / Place of origin: United States

History: The Amrock chicken was created in the
United States, and has the same ancestry as the Barred Plymouth Rock. The difference between the breeds is mainly productive abilities. For many years the Barred Plymouth Rock was bred for showing, and the Amrock for utility.

After, World War II, most of Germany’s birds had been consumed. The United States sent over Amrocks to help provide meat and eggs. Consequently, the breed has become popular throughout Europe, but is almost unheard of in the United States.
