    Redstar is a certain red sexlink cross (can't remember which off the top of my head) but I have a red sexlink and I think she's my best chicken!

    Favorite anyway, very sweet and friendly, seemingly fearless, top of the pecking order and buddy with my rooster. She lays nice brown eggs with a darker yolk than my Leghorns ever lay (even though they all eat the same). I think she currently averages about 6 eggs a week. She also has very soft feathers compared to my other birds.

    We use Sil Go Link hens which are another form of sex-link. They lay quite well.
