    I think you maybe right, other then that she maybe a Production Red, hard to tell these days with all the red colored hybrids.

    I think you are right on New Hampshire Red.

    I've been wondering... how would one tell the difference between a NH Red, A RI Red, and a "production" red?

    RIRs are a darker red.

    Thanks for the images, that's super helpful! I'm starting to think my "RIRs" are actually just production reds.

    Ugh, it's always so sad to lose a bird! I have lost 3 birds, but somehow my reds always escape. They tend to be the most skittish in my flock, I think that may have helped them escape.
