Go to the Warren Co fair.  They have a pen of red sex links for sale there -  it's a 4 H project.  They are mislabeled RIR, but are red sex links for sure.  They look to be approximately 12 weeks old.  I have no idea what the price is.  While there go to the Stewartsville Grange stand and have a piece of their incredible pie - 15 different kinds to choose from.
