This variety is a proprietary hybrid cross of several breed lines, which will yield 280+ colored eggs per year on a green to blue spectrum, depending upon the individual pullet. If you are looking for something different, which will lay at a competitive level, try our ColorPack Layer. Actual feather color may vary, as this is a hybrid cross of three breed lines. Not related in any way to the Americana, or Araucana.
The Black Sex Link variety was developed by crossing a Rhode Island Red male with a Barred Rock female. This breed line is a proprietary cross. This bird is also known for its cold hardiness and gentle disposition.

The Cornish Cross Broiler is a very unique and remarkable bird. We think of it as the BBB—big breasted broiler– it has very broad breasts, large thighs, beautiful white plumage and yellow skin.
