Production Red chickens are very similar to a Rhode Island Red chicken only lighter in color. The plumage color can vary from a red-dark red to a light red. They are a vigorous, hearty chicken that lays lots of large/x-large brown eggs. The Production Red chicken breed is a cross of a Rhode Island Red chicken over a New Hampshire chicken. This cross produces a very vigorous, healthy egg producing hen. This is not an exhibition show chicken but a great production laying hen and pet chicken for your backyard.
