Golden Buffs are "sex link" chickens, meaning they're bred specifically so that males and females are different colors when they hatch. Female chicks are always reddish, while males are white or light yellow.
Female Golden Buffs are egg-laying machines that continue to lay well in the heat and cold, when many others slow down. The males are said to be good "fryers" — which makes this a good dual purpose
breed! We love this breed for backyarders because the females are sweet, small and docile, in addition to being super layers! You may also know them by any of the following names:
Golden Sex Link

* The minimum order of day-old chicks shipped to Rhode Island is 12 due to Rhode Island state law.
