Brown Sex Link chickens are great egg producers. They are easy to keep and you can easily tell their sex at birth by coloring. We kept some of the roosters for meat. The hens are great layers for about a year, but still produced up until about 3 years old. They are not huge chickens and this may be an issue if you want hearty meat chickens. They are easy to keep and are easy to manage. Kids love to help with the eggs and this is a bonus for a farm-oriented family.
