    I picked up this chicken today at the side of the road. No box, but it sat quietly in the back (pooping) while I went to the chiropractor. Any ideas on breed? (I'm not good with generic brown chickens) Its more red than brown, some black tail feathers and around the neck. Looks like its going through a molt and I really hope its a hen or I'll be finding it a new home.

    You pretty much called it. Generic red chickens = production Reds.
