    I have 10 chickens; 2 roosters, 8 hens. They are all Red Sex Links and I love them all. I have 16 eggs in the incubator that should hatch soon! I also have seven quail eggs in there with them. I can't wait until they hatch!

    Red Sex Links are egg laying machines and you are going to get loads of eggs from them. One word of caution however, the recommended ratio of roosters to hens is 1 rooster for every 10 hens. Roosters can be very hard on hens physically; over-breeding them, injuring them with their beaks and spurs, and battering them. I currently have 25 hens, no roosters, and I get loads of eggs without feeding any non-egg laying mouths, without the aggression, fights, crowing in the middle of the night, injuries, and over-bred and battered hens that frequently goes along with having roosters (especially too many). Good luck with your hatch.
