    My ISA Brown out performs all 3 of my Leghorns combined. One egg a day always.

    Isa Browns aka red sexlinks are great producers, but also have greatly shortened lives.
    I love my amberlinks!

    My RIR/ Black Jersey Giant cross keeps right up with my red sex links. She is also friendly with other chickens unlike the bullying red sex links. They do produce really well but I won’t be getting more due to the poor treatment of new/other birds. They are however very very friendly with people.

    Commercial strain Red Sex Links are great layers of brown eggs but they tend to suffer from reproductive problems and are spent at 3-4 years of age.
    White Leghorns are amazing layers of large white eggs and will lay for many years.
