    He's a Production Red. Rhode Island Reds are a deep, rich mahogany red.

    I agree; he's a Production Red, although he's dark enough that he might have been marketed by a hatchery as a RIR.

    I think Rhode Island Red, maybe not SOP but still? I think a lot of the production reds don't get the nice yellow legs.
