    What are your plans for these chickens? Eggs, meat, pets? How much room do you have for them? In the city, country, on a farm?

    All of the red sex-link hens are very good layers, generally not broody, are relatively calm and friendly, are fairly good foragers and are very efficient feed converters. With the price of laying pellets, you will appreciate this in the long run. Another bonus, in their second year, they will lay a lot of double yolkers.
