So if I want sex links, I have to have a rhode isl red rooster and a certain hen. When certain breeds are crossed, sex linkage allows the sex of the chicks to be established at a day old by a difference in down colour which is useful when producing hens for laying since it reduces the rearing costs to the breeder and ultimately the price you pay.
Log in. Got 12 red pullets from TSC9wks old now. It would make sense for a breeder in the North to select for cold tolerance in parents.
Will the eggs remain small? Top Bottom. Free Range Broilers. Please provide your email and we will notify you when available to order. Shipping Nationwide.
Leave it as is Fix it. What is a Sex Link? Random Ramblings. Is a pure breed or a cross bread? Or dependent on the breeding line?
These are a truly great breed. They are Great at laying eggs though. The Red Sex Link results from a cross between a Rhode Island Red rooster and a Delaware hen, producing an outstanding dual-purpose chicken. I have 25 of these girls and they are great layers!
