The Rhode Island White breed may sound similar to the Rhode Island Red, but they are actually different breeds. The Rhode Island White was developed through crosses of Partridge Cochins, White Wyandottes and got their rose comb from White Leghorns. The breed was solidified in 1903, and was accepted by the American Poultry Administration in 1922.

It is a pretty rare breed today, with less than 3,000 birds known to exist circa 2003.
