Not necessarily, I think there might be one or two hatcheries that call that cross a "Production Red"
There are two popular types of "Production Red" one is a R.I. Red bred solely for egg production and selectively bred solely from the R.I. Red.
The other type "Production Red" is a cross of a R.I. Red and a Leghorn.

Keep in mind that the New Hampshire was also bred solely from the R.I. Red with no other outside blood added.

7L Farm,

Heritage Red are only available from a breeder period. If you get R.I. Red's from a hatchery then it is a "Production Red".

Here is a picture of one of my Heritage Rose Comb Red's

No mine came from a breeder. I called them today out of curiosity. I love them either way. I called them cause I want more their cool chickens & I need more huevos.
