Gold Sex Links were developed 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 us to easily sex these chicks at day of hatch.
Adult males are solid white and have a body type similar to a Rhode Island Red. Adult female have a very light red body appearance with white tails, wing tips, hackles and body undercover.
These chickies lay about 240 large brown eggs a year.
