Last week I bought some chicks from my local feed store. He said they were RIR from Cackle. When I told him if they came from a big hatchery they would probably be production reds, He told me you can get PR from Cackle, but these was Rhode Island Reds. Last night I checked their website and sure enough Cackle sells RIR's and PR's.Does anyone know the difference? It really is not important to me as I have no interest in showing chickens, just curious. I would be really surprised if they are true RIR. Thanks for any info.
