I don't know about Production Reds, are they considered Red Stars? If so they are great layers. Enjoy your new babies!

Holy Hannah, I had a heck of a time finding this thread again! Anyhow I went to Google and looked up Production Reds. It brought me to the Cackle hatchery site. They are related to the RIR and it says are a " vigorous brown egg layer". They look like the RIR only a little lighter. Pretty birds. Good luck!

I have 4 Production Reds in my flock of 10 hens & they are by far my best layers. They lay big brown eggs and are very friendly. If you're after lots of eggs then go with the production reds.

They are a cross between RIR and another breed, bred for egg production. Not sure if they are sex linked or not but would not be surprised if they are. I have black sex links for egg production.
