    It's been a LONG time since I've been able to even visit the site and I'm happy I finally found the time.

    Anyways, to anyone that might know, are black sex links better egg layers that barred rocks or is it the opposite? Approximately how many eggs do black sex links lay a week?

    (Bonus question! What is the color of black sex links' eggs)

    It really depends on the strain and the hens, but I find my black sexlinks lay more than my BR. My sexlinks at prime gave about 6 a week i figure, but now that they are three years old almost, they only give a few a week, also depends on weather and such.

    Brown eggs.
