The Novogen is a red sex link and is one of the best brown egg layers on the market today! It will thrive in managed housing or in free range applications (such as your back 40) and retains a good foraging instinct. This means they will entertain you while they chase insects around your backyard! The genetics for these incredible birds are drawn from White Leghorns and Rhode Island Reds. They have very calm and easy to manage temperaments which make them an easy to raise bird and also great pets.
