    If her dad is a RIR, and the mom could be RIR or NHR or Production Red, she is either RIR or Production Red. I'm thinking Production Red.

    I don't think she is ether of the three, since she has blue legs which neither of those have. I'm guessing that her mother was some kind of mix, definitely not a pure bred RIR.

    She's a mixed breed, possibly a hatchery quality Production Red, but if so she has some other bloodline in her beside RIR and HNR or her legs would be yellow, not blue.

    Thanks for clearing that up. If her legs are discolored by mud, then I think she's a Production Red.
