    Okie Dokie, Thanks, that's what I was thinking. I have been dealing with chickens for years now and even RIRs but have never quite seen one like Charlie before.

    He looks just like my easter egger. Except for that comb of course. I would say a production red.

    yup, there is very little difference, if any, between Hatchery RIR and production red, both are a mixed breed
