Fred's point was that the name of the breed is New Hampshire. Period. Not New Hampshire Reds.

I have a question. I purchased two Rhode Island Red from a hatchery. Does this mean my birds are Production Red or are they considered RIR but not SOP? Just wondering. I love them and don't plan on breeding them.
I took this pic of the gals in the coop today. They are 8 weeks old.

So if you want show quality birds where do you get them from? Do you have to pay $29-$199 per straight run chick and get them from somewhere like Greenfire Farms?

I've no clue where to get them and how much.

You could try looking up the Heritage Rhode Usjand Red site. Try post your questions there. They would be the people that could tell you more.

Just a word if warning though mist will tell you hatcheries don't sell pure RIR, but I think what happens is that hatcheries hatch so many at once and do not cull a hard if at all their birds. Massed produced and order are quickly filled.

But anyway check out the Herutage thread.
