    How exciting - congratulations on your new babies! [​IMG]

    A production red is usually some sort of Rhode Island cross, yes. They're egg-laying machines, so you'll be glad you have her. [​IMG]

    Congrats on your new babies.

    A production red is not a RIR. A production red is using a RIR or a NHR rooster to cross to make a red sexlink of several different names depending on the hatchery and the area of the country you are in - golden comets, cinnamon queen etc.
