    All are about 18mo old and the polish are 4mo :) I think the polish are so funny looking, but not exactly what I expected...thinking they may change as they age but they remind me of pet birds people have in their homes! LoL

    Golden Buff is one of many labels under which some hatcheries market their Red Sex Links, but no matter which label they are marketed under, all Red Sex Links are egg laying machines. You will get loads of eggs from those ladies. Good luck with your flock.
