Black Sexlink chickens are an excellent brown egg layer. This variety was developed by crossing a Rhode Island Red male with a Barred Rock female. This breed line is a proprietary cross, intended for high production egg laying. This bird is also known for its cold hardiness and gentle disposition. If you are looking for a brown egg layer, with a different color pattern than that of our brown high production egg layers, consider our Black Sexlink.
