    I am a newby to the chicken world. My husband built the best chicken coop and run and I had to fill it. I just got 8 redsexlink girls. Not sure what that means but I am getting lots of eggs. LOL Love taking care of them and learning. Thank you all for sharing your wisdom for people like me!

    Welcome to BYC.
    Red Sex Link means they were able to tell the boys from the girls at hatch.

    Post some pics of your husband's hardwork and your pretty girls!

    Welcome to BYC! So glad you joined us! Red sex-links are a hybrid bred to be able to sex at hatch by coloring and for great laying ;). If you have any questions feel free to ask!

    Sex links are only predictably sexed by color for that generation. if you breed them that trait will be lost.
