The Amberlink breed isn't that common in the U.S. right now and Mt Healthy is one of the few chick hatcheries that offer them (Mt Healthy is the supplier for my local TSC). Also known as the DeKalb or Silver Amberlink, they are a Rhode Island White hybrid and should be mostly white with flecks of brown at maturity. The Amberlink is a large bird that will produce large brown eggs.
Until yesterday, my flock consisted of Black Sex Link and Production Red hens so I think the brighter coloring of these little gals will be a nice contrast in my backyard. You'll be seeing more pics of these little cuties for sure.
As you can see, Molly approves.
I'm taking part in the A-Z Blogging Challenge, where I will post something from each letter of the alphabet on the corresponding day in April, except for Sundays. I will be posting on at least one of my four blogs daily. You can see my other blogs in the right sidebar - More of Marie Anne.
