    The only two girls that I don't know the breed of! Everyone said NH Reds but my previous Reds were much much darker! They're pretty calm and non-aggressive. Good egg layers with large tan/cream colored eggs. [​IMG]

    Maybe NH red/ buff Orpington cross? Anyone agree? Haha

    She looks like a Production red, or Red sexlink to me, or possibly a cross.

    She's Production Red.


    A Sex-link would have white in her tail.
    A New Hampshire (note there is no "Red" in the breed name) would have a different body type and to a point darker.
    Orpingtons have a different body type and would have White legs, feet, beak etc.

    She's also not even close to a Rhode Island Red.

    Could they be production red crosses? They're super light yellow

    Genetics are playing a lot in the color, since the Production Red isn't a true breed there are a number of combinations of breeds that can used to make up a Production Red.

    To me she looks like a Production Red that carries Leghorn blood in her somewhere in the breeding.
