 Stoplight Breed Of The Week Amberlinks
Amberlink Chickens
Amberlinks are a high production bird designed and bred for dependable egg laying and are a hybrid from the ISA Hendrix genetic line. They are a result of breeding 2 pure breeds, the Rhode Island White male with a Rhode Island Red female. These hybrid Breeding’s are complex, and you may not get the same results if you simply bred a Rhode Island White with a Rhode Island Red. Also, since Amber links are hybrids You won't get an Amberlink chick if you breed two Amberlinks together.
They are calm docile birds that mature early and have an excellent feed conversion rate. Amberlinks are excellent foragers for the free-ranging environment but also do well in confinement. They are cold hardy as well as heat tolerant birds.
