    Welcome :) sorry that i couldn't help with the breed :/
     
  5. Production red hen, 100% hen, 80% prod. red, but it is NOT a New Hamshire, they have fluffier butts. It may be another breed but I doubt it.

    True New Hampshires are extremely rare. Some of the folks here at BYC have the German New Hampshire line and are working hard to re-establish the New Hampshire to its true, dual purpose heritage. There are a couple of great threads here, if you have an interest.

    Unless you got the bird from one of the handful of heritage breeders, there is almost no chance that it is a New Hampshire. Looks to be a perfectly healthy, normal hatchery quality red bird of unknown lineage, as most production reds are. Lots of barnyard bred red birds too.
