My four little red hens

    My little red hens, that's what I was told my girls were when a friend offered them to me in June of 2014. After a little research I found out that I actually had red sexlinks but they will always be my little red hens[​IMG].
    We had no idea how old they were but we didn't get our first egg until mid September. Our family has gone through a move to another state with our girls and I am proud to say without a hitch. In fact one of my sweet girls layed while we were in transit. They have settled well into their new environment and at least three of them have layed everyday since their first egg. I love my little girls! The one featured in the picture both when she was little and in the nesting box is Ginny Weasley and the one on the swing is Molly Weasley. [​IMG]

    Love all the Weasleys! Bet your girls have their own brand of magic! Is there a Harry or Ron in their future?

    We have 3 RSL's in our mixed flock and I think they are wonderful. Scotty is my favorite, she sort of adopted me as her lap person. The eggs are just a plus on top of their great personalities. Glad you're enjoying your little red hens!

    Red sex link are docile, you know they are hens, and excellent egg producers. Also eating machines. To get eggs out you have to put food in. On the down side their life span is short. They overwork themselves producing eggs.
