My beautiful boy! What is he? - Page 2

post #11 of 18

The four up front are some sort of red/gold/brown sexlink. Lohman Brown is one 'brand' of red sexlink. Each hatchery has their own specific mix and markets them under different names.

The one behind the rooster looks like she might be a Production Red.

The picture is probably not very clear but all the girls look exactly the same except for Boom, the one on back has fewer white tail feathers.

I see. They are all red sexlink hens.

Agreed; Red Sex Links are marketed by hatcheries under a number of different labels including Lohmann Brown, Red Star, Gold Sex Link, Gold Star, Red Shaver, Isa Brown, Golden Comet, Golden Buff, Cinnamon Queen, Warrens, Babcock Brown, etc., but no matter what label they are marketed under, they are all laying machines. You should get loads of large, brown eggs from those five girls. :o)

Red Shavers are just another 'brand' name for a red sexlink type bird.

Agreed. Red Sex Links are also sometimes sold under the label Brown Shaver.
