    Although it is beautiful, the white around the legs is a little questioning. I think it's probably a PR.

    The white is throwing me too, I'd say Production Red. It IS possible that it's a hatchery quality RIR, and that the juvenile molt will see those white feathers disappear. But it's more likely to be PR. Either way, you're going to get oodles of eggs!

    I have 3 rir and she doesn't look like mine. She has a quite bit more blackish feathering hope this helps

    Not a Rhode Island Red.

    I would say it was just a "Red" chicken.

    i think she is a production red. they are red chickens that are hybrids of laying breeds and are usually red with some black or white (or both) feathers on the legs, wings, hackles, or tail, while RIRs are usually just red. she is a very pretty bird, BTW!
