If you are looking for a chicken that is fast to mature and produces ample eggs, the Red Sex Link may be the breed for you. This hybrid chicken is primarily used for egg production and is specifically bred to be able to easily sex males from females by color. They are a hardy breed that adapts well to changes in weather and environment, making them one of the most popular backyard chicken breeds in the US. They are active, kid-friendly, and always eager to eat. It is worth noting that Red Sex Link roosters can be rather aggressive and territorial, unlike the hens, and are not recommended around children or other pets. Each hen can lay roughly 200 to 280 large light brown eggs per year. The average weight of males comes in at about 8.5 pounds and females roughly 6.5 pounds. Red 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. Valley Hatchery provides only the best chickens for sale, no matter the breed so your experiences as a chicken keeper can be enjoyable and fulfilling.
