    Hatcheries cross two good egg-laying breeds, usually a red rooster over white hens. The specific breeds depend on the hatchery, as does the name they call the offspring. The girl chicks are gold when the hatch, the boys are silver. This way you have a great chance of getting all pullets. They're great layers, and usually pretty friendly and mellow. Great backyard birds. They're known as red stars, cinnamon queens, gold comets, etc depending on the hatchery. The generic term is sex-link.
