    I think that they are all Red Sex links... some have different varieties of moms and dads but they all look similar.

    It may be a Delaware X New Hampshire Red Cross

    Or a New Hampshire X Production Red Cross...... which would make them another variety of Production Reds...

    Lay big brown eggs.

    Still reading....

  3. My Cinnamon Queens are suppose to be from RIR roos and Leghorn hens. I have about 12 left now. They lay brown eggs and are prolific at it. The winter months have been hard on all my birds. I get about 2 eggs a day from about 80 hens. This does suck. I can not wait for spring, then again I will have to get a new frig to handle the eggs before we can give them away to family and friends.

    From what I can find, Red Shavers are very popular in New Zealand. The folks there don't like white eggs as much as brown. My kinda folks.
