    Quote:It's not a "real" RIR. It's a "production red" or hatchery RIR.

    She looks to be "old" as well. Look at how washed out her shanks are.

    Any clue how old (roughly obviously) she could be?? She was free range with MANY other hens and roosters.

    Quote:She's "old" for a layer... Year 1/2 - two 1/2 years if she was a heavy layer, judging by how washed out her legs are.

    I agree with your guess, many of my chickens look just like yours, and I know what they are because my Father in law bred them that way.
