    Can anyone tell me if I decide to breed one of my sex-links with another sex-link will I get the same high egg laying capability in future generations? I'm not worried about sexing them or colors, just trying to keep the egg laying capacity of my flock high.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would expect that that would follow.

    Thanks for coming up with a new sex-link question [​IMG]

    And I would think that your laying ability would probably keep up for a while but it would be nice to cross in another breed every now and then to add to the hybrid vigor.
