    What a pretty girl! I was thinking about getting some red stars because I hear they lay well in the winter. Thanks for the picture...

    Thanks Hawki ! I was going to hunt a photo of my RIR rooster but you saved me the trouble. My sex link chicks came from cackle hatchery and they look different from most of sex links I see on the net. thanks chick4chicks for telling me about the 15 week old sex link laying. This gave me hope.
    If I live till spring I am going to cross these bird with my RIR to see what I will get. I love hatching chicks under my hens.
    My bantams set last year in December so I might try some of the eggs under a hen before spring. Life is uncertain , why wait when you can do something today.

    Well life is short as I said Mahonri so here is one of my RIR hens from cackle I raised last spring. They are so red they look almost black.
