    Golden commets are another sex link type chicken. As with all hens, they peak produce beteen 1-2 years old and slowly decline after that. If they are pets, no problem. If they are for eggs and that is their purpose, you might want to look into rotating your laying stock.

    I have four chickens. My RIR and my red-sex-linked are the nicest. They are friendly and like to be held.
