What is the difference between the two? And which one is he??
He's technically a Production Red.
The word Production Red can refer to a couple things, but one of them is a Production-bred Rhode Island Red. (majority of them out there) He's still easily considered a Rhode Island Red, but I'd consider him a Production Red, being that his type, color, shape, background, and likely weight don't fit for a true RIR.
Thanks! I was just wondering. Good to know.
There are two true types of true "Production Red" is selectively bred solely from the R.I. Red. solely for egg production. These birds tend to have some black in there tail and some ticking in there hackles.
The other type of "Production Red" is a cross and the result of a R.I. Red with Leghorn blood added. These birds tend to be lighter in color and may have some white in there tail.
Some Hatcheries clam that there R.I. Red /New Hampshire cross is a Production Red but this cross to me is not a true Production Red because the New Hampshire as a breed was bred solely from the
R.I. Red for a more meat type fowl not egg production.
