    NovoGen are red sex links that are very popular in commercial laying houses - both for their being able to be sexed with 100% accuracy at hatch due to being sex links and for their prolific laying in the first and second laying cycles. As sex links they aren't actually a "breed" but rather the result of a selective crossing of breeds. Sex links are sold under many different proprietary names, such as the NovoGen Brown.
