    Definitely NOT RIRs.

    Those are golden sex links, or gold comets (as my TSC marks them as).

    Good layers and ok pets, one of my meanest hens is a
    Gold sex link but others find them very docile.

    YAY for sex-links!!!! ALL RIRs I have had were MEAN! Sex-links have a better, calmer temperment. We ALWAYS get golden and black when we get new babies! I LOVE the fact that because they are a mixed breed, they all look different! Easier to identify when they start laying! Last year my Sexlink laid a BEAUTIFUL double yolker every week! They are wonderful layers!!!! This is my Henny Penny in the front!
