Have you heard of a Quohog?

It’s pronounce ko-hog.  It’s a Native American word for clams.  When the English settlers came to America this was what they were taught and in our region, it has stuck.  A quohog is a quohog.

Now can you guess what Rhode Island’s state bird is?

Yep. You guessed it. A chicken.  The Rhode Island Red.
