ive read the production reds are a cross of rir and nw hamp. reds. and i mistakenly said my hens were red. they are solid white. they are rhode island whites. so with this knowledge does your answer still hold? im looking to try something over my whites to make sexlinks. but sexlinks with outstanding production abililities. i know the rir is the go to breed but was wondering if there was another "red" type rooster that has equivalent abilities to the rir and will make golden pullet offspring when he is crossed to my riwhite hens. thanks.
