Small Flock Selection

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'd like some feedback on the selection of the following for a small flock of six hens.  Two Cinnamon Queens, two Black Sex LInk, and two Austra Whites.  They all seem to be around the same size and based on what I read have demeanor that are complimentary.  What do you think?

 

Thanks

All three of these are excellent laying hybrids and the Cinnamon Queens (one of a number of labels under which some hatcheries market their Red Sex Links) and Black Sex Links are laying machines that will consistently churn out more than 300 large brown eggs per hen per year. I especially love the Black Sex Links which are very friendly and hardy and are especially persistent layers in really cold winter weather.

Thanks for your feedback. Thought my research would prove both of us to be correct.
