    Yes, I have production Reds. The ISA lays 29 out of 30 days. The production Reds will compete well. 27 out of 30 days. Both fine personality and feed conversion rates. Think of the ISA as a specialized kind of Red anyhow.

    A friend of mine has production reds and says that in spring and summer they lay 2 a day. She got 2 dozen eggs per week from 2 hens!

    I don't think mine lay as good as say, sex links, but they do quite a good job for my family and the neighbors. They're as friendly as any other chicken, and when raised right, will be lap chickens.
