Gold Sex Link Chickens are one of the top sellers in the industry because of the number of eggs they lay and their demeanor. They are known for their fast body development, fast egg production and rich brown egg shell color, quality and texture. Gold Sex Links are docile birds and extremely easy to work with. This strain will start to lay eggs at a younger age than most standard breeds and produce large to extra large brown eggs.
Gold Sex Links were developed in the 1950’s by crossing a Rhode Island Red male with a Rhode Island White female for efficient brown egg production and ease of sexing. Male Gold Sex Link chicks are light yellow without any red, while the females have varying amount of red down. This slight difference in down color allows the hatchery to easily sex these chicks at day of hatch. Adult females have a very light red body appearance with white tails, wing tips, hackles and body undercover. Adult rooster feathering color varies from totally white to white with light to dark red feathers on shoulder feathers. Book these early because they are a high demand layer for farm use with egg production.
