    Is this a RIR? There is some black on the wings and around the neck(which is hard to see in the picture). I also thought RIR's were darker.

    Hatchery quality RIR or Production Red, probably.

    To me it looks mixed, the body shape especially the legs in particular(seems so short legged) are "off" for a hatchery RIR or production red.

    Breeding RIR with another breed can make birds in this color.

    Looks like a Production Red or hatchery New Hampshire hen.

    I think the fact that terms like "hatchery quality" RIR or New Hampshire are being used is pretty rock solid evidence that it is a Production Red (red gene rooster X red gene hen).
