    Pictures would help. But you really can't tell the age of a chicken with any accuracy after they have matured. A production red is a hybrid that is a cross of two or more breeds, so they really aren't a breed. However there are crosses that do carry names like say Red Star or Cinnamon Queen.

    Production reds do not have feathered feet, just plain yellow feet, so she's a different breed mix.
