Roo or a hen? - Page 2

They should lay at least as well as the mothers. Your pullets will be black, your cockerels will be barred.

X2 on enola. Any solid colored rooster bred to a barred hen will produce Black Sex Links. They will likely be even better brown egg layers than your Barred Rock hens. It's one of the interesting quirks of hybridization. :o)

X2 on enola; and the male chicks will be black with a white spot on top of the head while the tops of the female chicks' heads will be black without the white spot.

That's good news!! I have. RIR rooster and hens and I have 6 buff orpington hens I'm going to put with him. What will that produce? I'm new at this.

RIR x Buff usually gives orange/gold colored birds, male and female. The white skin is usually dominant. They're a nice mixed breed that lays well. No sex linkage.
