Amber Sex Link Chickens


Other name(s):
 Amber Link Chicken; Amber Hybrid Chicken; Amber Star Chicken; Amber Lee Chicken; Dekalb Amberlink

Scientific name: Gallus gallus domesticus

Country / Place of origin: Not known

History: Amber Sex Link Chickens are created by crossing a Rhode Island Red Chicken and a white Plymouth Rock Chicken. The Amber Link can be sexed as soon as they hatch, as males and females are different colors.

A cross breed, or "hybrid" chicken is created by crossing two different chicken breeds. Modern hybrids are typically created for their high egg laying ability or egg color. Modern hybrids are often vaccinated against Mareks and Infectious Bronchitis (IB) which rarely, if ever occurs with traditional / heritage breeds as vaccinating small numbers is expensive. Many breeds of cross-bred chickens exist, but none breed true or are recognized by poultry breed standards. Names vary, as breeders often name their sex link chickens.
