Well, it's been about a year since I began on my backyard chicken journey and I'm still questioning myself all the time... My Red Sex Links are looking rough, they aren't full and bright red (in the face) like they used to be. I suspect because of the type of breed they are that they are just "spent" after a year of consistent egg laying. They do have the life, free ranging most of the day and plenty of treats every morning. Would they make a good meat bird? Are they getting too old for that? Please let me know what you think!
