What type of Red Sec-Link should I order; Cinnamon Queens, Golden Comets, or "regular" Red Sex-Link?

    The place I'm ordering from offers Cinnamon Queens, Golden Comets, and Red Sex-Links. I originally just wanted Red Sex-Links to show in egg laying classes, but they offer THREE different crosses of sex-links. Here are the crosses used:

    The Cinnamon Queens are a cross between a Rhode Island Red male and a Rhode Island White female
    The Golden Comets are a cross between a Cherry Egger male and a Rhode Island White female
    The Red Sex-Links are a cross between a Rhode Island Red male and a Delaware female, and do not have a "classic" Red-Sex-Link look, but my friend did well with them once.

    Any ideas of what would do best?

    It's really six of one/half dozen of the other here- meaning there is no real difference to be had in choosing one over the other.
