If your hens are white and red they are not Rhode Island Reds. They may be a cross with Rhode Island Red as one parent. Most likely they are some kind of sex-link chickens.

The ones in the background look like Rhode Island Reds. The red and white ones look like red sex-link chickens. The hatchery probably through those in for heat when your grandfather ordered Rhode Island Reds.

A Buff Orpington rooster bred to those hybrid hens will give you a variety of looks. It should be fun to see what comes out of the eggs. :)
