She's a Production Red (hatchery "red" bird).
I agree with Wyandttes7. She looks like a Production Red.
Agree on the above. The hatchery red sex links usually have white tips and tails. Her color and build aren't right for a Rhode Island red. She's what we call a production red, or cherry egger, which is a bird based on a Rhode Island red or New Hampshire, but with other breeds along the way to boost production.
Thanks, everyone. This was really helpful.
well, i think it might be rir or nhr
her legs are yellow and she seems young, so not all filled out yet.
and i think i see a little black, like a hatchery rir
or better yet, a new hampshire red?
how about a couple more pics?
from what i can see, her face is red. cant go wrong either way!
i enjoy guessing. is the other a black star?
can anyone who is more educated or knowledgeable about this,
remark on my so called"clues"?
I have three Rhode Island Reds and at that age they had darker red feathers and looked different so I'm still thinking she's a Production Red.
Here are my 3 RIRs (and a White Rock) at 2 1/2 months.
She's not a dark enough mahogany to be a pure RIR and she's too dark to be a NHR. She's a Production Red.
