    I bought me 4 black sex link pullets last night. What I am wondering is how big do they get? Also can any of you post pics of yours?

    they get to be a fairly large chicken and they are great egg layers. the eggs will be brown. when they first start laying the eggs will be small but in just a short time the eggs will be large. in my opinion one of the best laying chickens there are. mine started laying at just four months.
    hope this helps.

    Thats great. The hens I have now haven't layedc much at all all summer. Last year I was getting over 60 eggs a month out of 7 hens. This year I did good to get 2 or 3 a month. The old hens are 3 years old. I thought I might just start with some younger hens. Thanks for the info

    Thanks for the pictures you guys. They are some pretty birds. Out of the ones I have there is 2 with red around the face and the wings look like there will be some dark red in them also. The other 2 look all black right now.
