We have found the sex link brown egg layer that meets our strict specifications: the BLACK STAR. Black Star hens are wonderful layers of large brown eggs. Black Stars are easy to raise and have a good feed conversion ratio.
At maturity, Black Stars weigh a little over 5 lbs. The females are black with gold hackle and breast feathers, and they are egg laying machines. The males are black with white barring. (They will not retain the same characteristics in future generations.)
Put a few Black Stars on your order; we’re sure you’ll be pleased.
Note: a "sex-link" chicken is one, which at the time of hatch, can be sexed by its color.
