    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.

    Hi! I'm new here and so happy I found this site. I have a question about the Amber Link. When they start laying, are the eggs brown?
