I picked up 6 amber link pullets today from TSC just wondering what cross is made to make these? Also if anyone has these how is the egg size? They are from Mount Healthy Thanks

I got one from TSC last year, I had no idea what kind it was lol.  Finally got that figured out, but she lays a nice big egg, large or x large now. I got 4 red sex links also and they all started laying in Aug of last year, and really started off laying  a good size egg. I get an egg a day  from the amberlink and  she laid throughout the winter too. I'm very happy with mine, though she is a bit more flighty than the others.

Ambers are a cross of an Rhode Island Red rooster over a White Plymouth Rock Hen.

You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, you can make a purse out of it, but it won't be silk. LOL
 
Maybe in about another 30-40 years I'll get this "being an expert" thing figured out by then. LOL
 
Still trying to practice Granny's advice 'if you don't have anything nice to say then keep it to yourself' LOL been at it for 45 years still don't have it down pat yet!
