Our best pure breed layers are our White Leghorns at 5 each a week. Our best layer is our Leghorn X Black Sex-Link cross that come out looking like a White Rock and they are on day 45 of laying every day. We have 4 of them laying now and 2 more just starting and growing 6 more.

Put a RIR Roo over your BR hens and you'll get Black sex link laying machines.

If I put a leghorn roo over the RiR hen, will new Mix provide eggs that are large and brown?

and

If I put a RiR Roo with a BR Hen will the black sex link prove large brown eggs?

I see, and your saying the sex link is pretty much one of the best layers?
