    This question comes up about 3 or 4 times a week.

    Do a search for Cinnamon Queen, Isa Browns... you'll find a list of Red sex links somewhere.
  5. I LOVE Red Sexlinks!!!! My very first chickens were two Red Sexlink pullets. One started laying about two weeks after I got them. The other one layed her first egg on Thanksgiving Day of 2006. They're names were Penny and Little Red. I lost Penny the summer of '07 to a raccoon. And I lost Little Red and over half of my flock to raccoons this past summer. A friend who is more an uncle to me gave me one of his Red Sexlink hens and 6 of her babies. 5 roosters and 1 pullet. One the roosters died and I have to sell the others. They're pretty nasty. One of the roosters tried to bite me the other day. Needless to say, he ended on the other side of the coop. All the roosters except Rusty and Patrick stay away from me.

    According to Ideal, a Gold sex link is a RIW roo crossed with a RIR hen. A red sex link is a RIR roo crossed with a Delaware hen.
