I just thought I'd make this thread to see what others thought on the subject, and why. I have both Red and Black Sex-Links, and just wondered which one others preferred; there's poll attached that you can answer. Leave a note explaining why if you want. I personally like both, but I prefer Black Sex-Links.

I also have both, but do prefer black sex links as well. I like how they look, and to me they seem to have a bit of a calmer personality. My RSLs are all very pushy and ignorant.

I've raised both Sex Link varieties for years and they are both wonderful egg laying machines, churning out more than 300 eggs per hen per year, so I don't think you can go wrong with either Sex Link variety. However, between the two of them I prefer the Black Sex Links as my Blacks have been friendlier than my Red Sex Links, have laid slightly better in really cold winter weather, and have tended to have longer laying lives and slightly larger eggs (with double yolks not being uncommon).
