    I don't know what a production red looks like, but those are too light to be RIR if the color is true. The heads I can see are 2 hens and a roo.

    Well, if they are production reds or rhode island reds - you'll get tons of eggs from them!

    Could they be New Hampshire Reds? Those are lighter in color than RIRs. I can't tell if the combs are single or not.

    Probably most likely production reds/golden comets/red sex links - they have many different names.

    Golden comets have dominant white so they are going to have a tail that contains white feathers and or white in the wings.

    Production red are a taller bird with an angular shaped breast like a New Hampshire. They can be a dark red but are not shaped like a RIR.

    New hampshire are lighter colored and the color will vary over different parts of the body. They stand taller than a RIR.

    Rhode island red should be a brick shaped bird. Like a head, neck and legs glued to a big rectangular brick. They should be the same color (except the black in the wings and tail) over the body of the bird.
