    If they were rescued from a commercial operation, then most definitely they are production reds of some sort. Different hatcheries call them different things - red sexlinks, cinnamon queens, isa browns are just a few names. Excellent layers, and typically very laid back.

    They look like my production red....I think they were called cherry eggers when I bought them from Cackle. Good layers, sweet friendly hens.
