Black Sexlinks are hybrid crosses. The Black Sexlink is a cross between a Barred Rock hen and a Rhode Island Red Rooster. They lay large brown eggs. The deal with sexlink chicks is that you can tell the males from the females simply by color. They are a hybrid developed to combine the best traits of their parent breeds and are generally hardy and good egg layers. These are not the birds you want to use if you are planning to hatch any of their eggs, but they are definitely a good option if you are looking for a reliable, egg-producing bird.
