    I think they would be 3/4 RIR depending on if the production red were 1/2 RIR. or more , Porduction red are either RIR or New Hamp. red with some other breed mixed in to increase production.
    if you took the females from the cross and breed them to RIR you would have RIR after a few generations for sure.

    In short no, you wont not be able to get Rhode Island Reds from a Production Red/ Rhode Island Red cross.

    Genetics do not work that way. Even if you kept breeding back to purebred RIRs, you'd never get a purebred RIR by crossing them with production reds. You'd just have production reds, basically.
