    You've got a nice mixed flock. The first breed I ever had were Light Brahmas (about 50 years ago) and they were gentle giants. Ameraucanas (actually ours are Easter Eggers as true Ameraucanas lay only blue eggs) are my granddaughter's favorites. She loves the different colored eggs that they lay. Both Black Sex Links and Red Sex Links are egg laying machines. Are your sex links Black or Red Sex Links?
