I was wondering about cross breeding. What is the difference between a Production Red, Red Sex-link and, Red Cross? I understand there are different hens used to achieve them, but are they all basically the same? And exactly how are they all crossed to get what? I think a RIR rooster is used for all of them? I am looking to get some more hens to produce alot of brown eggs for a small family restaurant. I have been told that the Production or Red Star is what I should use because they are light on feed but lay like crazy. Is this true?
