    What is a Cherry Egger? I assume it's like an Easter Egger... but they lay pink eggs? Anybody have any pics?

    A cherry egger is, to the best of my knowledge, another name for a red-sex-link. which are *awesome* layers and lay brown eggs.

    Just a production red layer that lays brown eggs.

    As others have said, they are just a production bred red. I am not sure what breeds are in their background. I had some for the longest time and they were nice layers of brown eggs (no, not cherry colored eggs unfortunately).
