The Sex-Link hens (Golden Comet, Golden Sex-link, Red Sex-link, Cinnamon Queen) are at the top of the list when it comes to egg production, which is impressive for their size. They do well in confinement, so they make the perfect addition to a backyard flock. They mature faster than other chickens and start to lay eggs sooner than other breeds, so if you’re in a hurry to start collecting eggs, this is the breed for you. Chickens are smart. With a little diligence, chickens can actually be trained. You can teach them to come when called or go into the coop when needed by using treats in conjunction with sound repetition.
