What’s the Difference between Production Reds and Sex-Linked Hybrids

What’s the Difference between Production Reds and Sex-Linked Hybrids?

The Production Reds are a true breed derived from Rhode Island Reds and the New Hampshire Reds. What this means is if you have a flock of Production Reds, they will be able to sustain themselves. Their fertile hatching eggs will results in more Production Reds. If you are a 4H kid or otherwise looking to show a bird, this is the choice for you.

The Red Sex Link is a hybrid, created by crossing a Rhode Island Red male and a Delaware Female. This means that a pair of Red Sex-Link parents will not result in more Red Sex-Links. You must have Rhode Island Red roosters and Delaware hens  and their fertile hatching eggs will result in Red Sex-Links.

The Black Sex Links is a hybrid as well, created by crossing a Rhode Island Red male and a Barred Plymouth Rock female.

The Cinnamon Queen  and the Golden Comets are hybrids also. They are excellent layers and even mature a bit earlier than your typical chicken.
