    She is so pretty. There is a RIR in my flock, and she is so much more darker

    You may want to search for threads from Texas and post on there. That way you will be hitting a larger audience, all of whom are located near you.

    Thats because yours is actually a RIR, and the one in the picture is being falsely sold as a RIR when it isn't.

    She is pretty though. Now I know alot about new Hampshires and RIR because there are some In my flock, so I know very little about Production Reds. I just know they are a mix of RIR and New Hampshire Red. So are they used for their egg production? Weather type?

    I don't have production reds so i don't know much about them, though i know they are very good egg layers. All i know is that "RIR" in the picture has so many faults with the RIR breed standard it shouldn't even be classified as such.
