    Will I be able to tell my light baramas and my red sex links's eggs apart?

    That is a hard one to answer. Red sex links can be made by crossing many different breeds. There is no telling what shade of brown they will be. Even knowing the breeds that are the parents of your red sex links would not help much. There are too many different genes involved that can be mixed in many different ways.

    Since Brahmas mature more slowly, if they are the same age, the first eggs you see will probably be the red six link eggs, but there is no guarantee of this.
