    out of all the PR(Production Red)is hand down 1 of the most BEST brown layin' hens around.they lay large brown eggs.There are more things to why people get the PR.For its companshion,its intelligence,and laying.Red sex links are okay.The RIR(Rhode Island red)is a pretty good layer I say rank number two.the BO(buff Orpington)lays light brown eggs.Its ranks probably fourth place.The red sex link really depends on the mixes.Really they move around the rank LOL.The austrualorp is around 5th place.Good luckl!
