    Hello! [​IMG]
    [​IMG] from Australia!

    I am the owner of four red sex-links. I've raised them from when they were week-olds, never had the experience of starting off with older hens. I hear they get used to humans more if they grow up with people, but that's just what I've heard [​IMG]
    Good luck with your birds, when the eggs start... hoo boy, it's pretty full on. An egg a day from every one of them. We've had to give so many away, and the little egg container in the fridge is always overflowing. [​IMG]

    Hope to see you more around the forums :Frow

    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Michigan! I have 4 sex-links. They aren't laying yet, but they are very gentle and quiet. If you want to speed up the bonding, go buy some mealworms or superworms from the pet store. They'll be your best friends in no time. [​IMG]
