Breed #3- (**I know the rooster is a RIR...I want to know the breed of the hen to the very left. Sorry, I couldn't get a good pic. She is a little lighter than breed #1...kind of orange.

Production Red is what some people name any "Rhode Island Red" from a hatchery or hatchery stock, and what some people call Rhode Island Red mixes. . . So it all depends.

They look to me like "Production Reds," though, but that's because I consider any RIR from a hatchery as such, as they're FAR from the breed standards and/or the original dual-purpose breed.
