    A hatchery Rhode Island Red, otherwise known as a Production Red.
    Pullet at 2 months. Roosters have some pretty large red combs by then.
    Nice girl. Should lay some nice eggs for you in about 8 weeks.

    I can't see good on my cell but it looks like a hen possibly a production red.

    Looks like a rhodey or new Hampshire to me, but I haven't had a lot of browns and reds other than NHR, RIR, and Wellsummers. But their veeery common so I'm pretty sure I'm right!

    Okay, now I'm confused, (go figure.) I've seen several people say that Production Reds are NOT RIRs. Is a hatchery RIR different than a RIR? If so, or not, what the heck kind of birds do I have?

    no worries. I'm confused too. but from what I've seen the Rhode Island red is a little darker then the production red. If I'm not mistaken you have to get a Rhode Island red from a breeder. Mostly what Tractor Supply sales is called Production Red.

    ^yes. Hatchery RIR are almost always production reds. Real RIR are not going to be found in your local feed store and will need to be bought from a breeder.
