Day Old Production Red Baby Chicks

Hatching February to July.

If you want lots of brown eggs this is the bird for you!

Production: You can expect 300+ large, brown eggs per hen. These birds are made for laying!

Temperament: Most owners say that their Production Reds are no more and no less friendly or aggressive than any other breed of chicken. It seems to have much more to do with the individual chicken than the breed overall.

History: Production Reds are Rhode Island Red Industrial Production strain. They are bred mainly to be very productive layers, but are heavy enough to be good meat birds, too.

As Production Reds gained popularity, Rhode Island Reds suffered and by the 1950s, almost all of the Rhode Island Reds were gone. Now, thanks to the efforts of many who are committed to raising that important heritage breed Rhode Island Reds they are now a strong breed.

Colors: Production Reds are, of course, red. They range in color from a light, rusty, red, to a dark brownish red.

Standard Weights: Rooster 9 lbs, Hen 7 lbs, Cockerel 8 lbs, Pullet 6 lbs

APA Class: not recognized.
