The Plymouth Rock is a breed that originated in the United States during the 19th century. Bred as a dual-purpose bird (for meat and eggs), the cold-hardy, docile birds are reliable layers of large, brown eggs. The most well-known color of the Plymouth Rock is the utility or Barred Plymouth Rock, which displays alternating bars of color, most commonly black and white. Until World War II, Barred Plymouth Rocks were the most common chicken breed in the United States.
