The Black Sex Link chicken produces ample amounts of eggs and is fast to mature making them a great beginner chicken for backyard keepers. This is a hybrid chicken that is specifically bred to be able to easily sex males from females by color and is mainly used for egg production. Active and kid-friendly, these are fun chickens to keep without any long-term commitments. It is worth noting that Black Sex Link roosters can be rather aggressive and territorial, unlike the hens, and are not recommended around children or other pets. Black Sex Link hens lay an average of 200 to 280 large light brown eggs annually. The average weight for the males is 8.5 pounds fully matured and the females average 6.5 pounds. Black Sex Links are not an APA-recognized breed. Due to their fast maturing and active egg-laying abilities, these chickens only live to be 2 to 3 years on average. All of our chickens for sale come with a live arrival guarantee.
