    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. Golden Buff 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 resulting offspring be sexed by color at hatching, 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 that lady. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
