    They are 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. Hatcheries market their Red Sex Links under a lot of different labels including Gold Sex Link, Brown Sex Link, Red Star, Gold Star, Golden Buff, Cinnamon Queen, Bovans Brown, Golden Comet, Hubbard Golden Comet, Isa Brown, Shaver Brown, Babcock Brown, Warrens, Hyline Brown, Goldlines, Lohmans Brown, Red Shaver, Brown Shaver, Bovans Goldline, etc.
