    Depends on what you want it for. A black sex link is a mixed breed, so if you don't want a mix breed then you would want the New Hampshire. If you're planning on trying to breed purebred New Hampshires in the future then you'd want the New Hampshire.

    Don't care about either of those things? Then keep the one with the best temperament.

    Whichever is best to you and to the hens.

    Depends. Which one has the best temperament? The black sexlink will produce the most variety when it comes to offspring, if that's something that's important.
