The Sex Link Hybrid is the result of crossing two heritage purebred poultry standard chicken breeds together. We take Cackle Hatchery®’s pedigree Rhode Island Red chicken rooster and the Cackle Hatchery®’s pedigree Barred Rock chicken hen and cross them to give you this outstanding brown egg laying hen offspring. The baby chicks for sale from this original cross are color sexable chicks- the grown roosters have faded barred with light colored neck hackle feathers, grown pullets or hens are black with red mixed in their neck hackle feathers. This hybrid chicken breed makes for very vigorous chicks, rugged brown egg laying hens and good cockerel chicken fryers. Although not a show chicken, they are great for raising hens for eggs and pet chickens for the backyard or farm. Many customers like the Black Sex Link chicken for raising free range chicken eggs or organic free range chickens. Cackle Hatchery® ’s chicken hatchery produces many of these chicks for customers at our store and for chickens for sale online. Be sure to reserve an order for these Black Sex Link baby chicks for sale.
