    I know that production reds lay pretty well... Do heritage RIR"s lay alot as well?
  2. Bob Blosi had just answered that question, in context of a discussion we were having on the Heritage Large Fowl thread. He states the RIR he bred, the Mohawks, were 180-190 eggs a year. That is much less the output of the modern production red or RSL, many of which will lay 280-290 their pullet season.
