    You might be able to find Cinnamon Queens under an alternative label. Cinnamon Queen is just one of many labels under which some hatcheries market their Red Sex Links. Other labels besides Cinnamon Queen under which Red Sex Links are marketed include Red Sex Link (the correct name), Red Star, Brown Sex Link, Gold Sex Link, Gold Star, Bovans Brown, Golden Buff, Golden Comet, Hubbard Golden Comet, Isa Brown, Shaver Brown, Babcock Brown, Warrens, HyLines, Gold Lines, Lohmans, Lohmans Brown, Bovans Goldline, etc. All of these different labels can be confusing, but they are all Red Sex Links, which are produced by crossing a red gene rooster with a silver gene hen. The resulting offspring can be sexed by color at hatching (male chicks are whitish, female chicks are reddish), and no matter which label they are marketed under, Red Sex Links are egg laying machines, outlaying either parent breed. It's one of the interesting quirks of hybridization.
