    I ordered Red sexlink pullets from cackle hatchery in May of this year. does anyone know how these birds rank in egg prduction?
    I keep a flock of bantams but with the price of eggs going up I decided to try a larger egg producting bird.
    I want a large egg but don't want a real heavy hen because the bigger the hen the more they eat is that correct?

    Welcome to B YC! They are bred to be a good producer of nice eggs. You should have plenty of eggs when they start laying.
