The Sex Link Hybrid is the result of crossing two heritage purebred poultry standard chicken breeds together: Rhode Island Red chicken rooster and Barred Rock chicken hen producing an outstanding brown egg-laying hen offspring. The baby chicks from this original cross are color sexable chicks- the grown roosters have faded barred with light colored neck hackle feathers, grown pullets or hens are black with red mixed in their neck hackle feathers. This hybrid chicken breed makes for very vigorous chicks, rugged brown egg laying hens and good cockerel chicken fryers. Although not a show chicken, they are great for raising hens for eggs and pet chickens for the backyard or farm.
