    or red sex link or something else? Chickens came with the house I bought and they didn't tell me what breeds they had. I think the other 3 are buff orpingtons and I thought these were rhode island reds but not sure.

    They are Production Red hens. You should get lots of large, brown eggs from them. :eek:)

    Production Reds. They are often sold by hatcheries as Rhode Island Reds, but aren't.

    Production Reds. They are often sold by hatcheries as Rhode Island Reds or New Hampshire Reds, but true RIRs and NHs look different.
