    Hey y'all. My family is participating in the chick chain through our local 4-H. A dozen chicks will arrive in March. Golden Sex Link. We are in the very early planning stages. Still need to build a coop and a run and buy supplies. This site was recommended by a speaker at our local poultry producer meeting. Can't wait to learn! :)

    Good luck with your future chickens! Golden Sex-links (also known as Red Sex-links) are nice productive birds.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    You'll really enjoy the Gold Sex-Links! They should be docile and very good layers for you.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. Golden Sex Link is one of a number of labels under which some hatcheries market their Red Sex Links, which are produced by crossing a red gene rooster with a silver gene hen. Not only can the offspring be sexed by color from hatching, but they are egg laying machines, outlaying either parent breed. It's one of the interesting quirks of hybridization. You should get loads of eggs from those girls. :eek:) Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your chicks.
