have tried. Mine are 3 years old now, and still producing 2 eggs a day during their laying season. 


The most common way to make Black Sex Links is a Rhode Island Red Male over Barred Rock Females.

Thank you so much for the interesting information! I just ordered some Barred Rock chicks, and it is good to know that some of my hardiest birds share genes with them... Winter hardiness is a necessity, here. We got some chicks that might have been White Leghorns, once  with disappointing results. Not hardy here, at all.
