Production Red Chickens
The Production Red Chicken Breed is a cross between the popular Rhode Island Red Chicken and the New Hampshire Red Chicken. They are bred to be a very capable and efficient breed for egg production, yielding vast quantities of large brown eggs. They were developed later than the Rhode Island Red Chicken to be less of a meaty bird and to require slightly less feed for optimal egg production.
They are smaller in size than Rhode Island Reds
, and have more brittle, lighter weight feathers. The color of the Production Red Chicken
is similar to the Rhode Island Red
, but they are noticeably lighter in color. The Production Red Chicken
is by far one of our most production Brown Egg Laying Chickens
. If your main concern is maximum egg production and optimal feed/lay ration, the Production Red
is your breed of choice.
The demeanor of the birds is for the most part calm and docile. Although the Production Red Rooster
can become a bit aggressive, especially in larger flocks. They are quite adaptable to a wide range of climates, and even make good winter laying birds. If you are looking for wonderful free-range egg production, the Production Red Chicken
is a great option.
