    I am planning on adding two more hens to my flock which currently consists of one barred rock and two bantam cochins. Basically my checklist is this:

    Tolerant of my other breeds

    Lays large to jumbo eggs daily(important)

    Not or rarely broody(my cochins are for that)

    Happy in a 600 square foot enclosure and unable or unwilling to escape the 6 foot fence.




    That's all I need. I was thinking like a red sex link or something, let me know what you think. Thanks.

    Sexlinks fit the bill perfectly. [​IMG]

    What sex link would be best for those requirements? I know where some golden sex links are available but should I hold out for red or black?

    Golden are the most commonly used, especially for commercial purposes, but I don't think there's much of an actual difference, really.
