I've searched and can't find the exact answer I am looking for. My dh likes Black Sex links. They are easy to raise and sell good. We have the RIR and the Barred Rock to breed these. We were told that red sex link lay better, we should try those. So I go to the hatchery I use website and found Golden sex link. I like them, they look good, but dh says that is not a red sex link. So my question is, What do you breed to get red sex link? Someone said just switch and use a barred rock roo and a RIR Hen, is this correct? And what is crossed to get the golden sex link? I like them and think I will order some to see how they do, but eventually I want to get away from ordering and raise only my own, so I would like to know what to cross, but I can't find consistency in answers?!
