Production Reds were developed from Rhode Island Reds and New Hampshire Reds for efficient brown egg production. Production Red chicks vary in shades of red with some having darker streaks down the back. They have single combs and clean legs and feet. Adults have a plumage color that varies from the dark shade of red that is associated with the Rhode Island Red, to the lighter red of the New Hampshire Red. They are considered a dual-purpose breed, but because of their small body size will not produce a large amount of fowl meat.
