Golden Comet Chickens
Golden Comets are one of a few "Modern Day Brown" egg chicken breeds that were specifically developed as fast growth, quality egg laying chickens. These baby chickens are sex-link chickens, meaning can be easily sexed after hatching. Farmers interested in maintaining strict rooster to hen ratios are often found raising chickens that can be easily sexed as chicks.
Golden Comet Chickens are a cross breed utilizing the Rhode Island Red Male and the Rhode Island White Female. The Comet breed developed from this particular cross is a hardy and robust dual purpose breed with superior egg laying capabilities. Please note that this breed is identical to the Cinnamon Queen Chickens and the Gold Sex Link, and these breeds are all created using the same parent stock combination. We use different names because many farmers across the country have various names for this variety of auto sexing brown egg layer.
Golden Comet Chickens are a good backyard chicken breed because they tend to be quieter than other breeds and they can handle confinement quite well. These chickens are a good choice for a small farmer interested in raising chickens because they will do well in the winter in smaller uninsulated chicken coops.< br>
