Even if these hens were, say, buff Orpingtons, there still would be no sex linkage in the chicks. Red/gold sex links require a gold rooster over a silver hen.

Agreed.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
