I'm 3 days into this new adventure! Picked up 7 black sex links and 3 red sex links on Tuesday. Now I'm wondering if the red sex links are actually full blown New Hampshire reds? They are all 4 or 5 weeks old. The red ones are still getting some of their feathers coming in, but are mostly feathered out. Part of what I liked about them was that some of their feathers are red with black bars -- really pretty! Do red sex links ever have black in the feathers? They don't have any white at all, or maybe they will have some white when the rest of their feathers come in? Or do I probably have New Hampshires? I'm confused! It seems like New Hampshires are not as good layers as the red sex links? Should I be disappointed?
