Red Sex Links Chickens

Red Star Chickens, traditionally known as Red Sex-Link Chickens,are bred for their increased egg laying abilities and such that one can easily tell the gender of the birds immediately after hatching. This is useful for flock owners who want to maintain a specific rooster to hen ratio at all times.

Red Sex Link Chickens can be developed using various red chicken breeds for the hen, but are always crossed with a Rhode Island Red Rooster or a New Hampshire Red Rooster. These particular Red Sex Links are a cross breed utilizing the Delaware Hen and the Rhode Island Red Rooster. The result is a prolific egg laying and quality meat bird with superior production value of its respective parents' breeds.
