We've been raising chickens for 2 years now. Our preference has been the sexlinks by far. Our first year we bought 4 golden sexlinks from a local farmer's store. They spoiled us with fat brown eggs. The next year I bought 3 black sexlinks from the same source. They are great layers too although the eggs are not as huge as the Golden's. This year I wanted to add 3 more to the flock and we decided we would not get anything other than Goldens. (we live in city limits and can only have so many chickens, otherwise I'd have 2 of every breed!).. we searched locally, couldn't find any. So we went to the next big town, farmer's store. They had Red Sex Links. The man helping us claimed they were the same as Goldens. We took his word, I'm sure I'll be happy with them as I've loved all our sexlinks. They are friendly and prolific layers. Short question - Was he correct? Same?
