    I have sex link chickens, and one that is looking like and Easter Egger. The sex links are 4 black and 5 red, my dad swears that these are the best for egg laying, is he right? I am very excited to have fresh eggs, but start getting worried I didn't get good chickens for laying. How do I know which breed they reall are???

    I can't get pictures to upload to here. Which sucks. I have seen pictures that others have put on and that has helped a bit to figure out what breed the 1 that is different is.
