What breeds might I hatch?
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
I think you will have a variety of breeds. It seems like my chicks usually look more like the breed of the hen but it can go either way. Sometimes the offspring doesn't look like either parent.
p.s. That's what makes hatching crossbreeds so much fun. You never know what you will get!

You will hatch mixed breeds. A red sexlink is not a breed, but a cross of two different breeds to produce chicks that can be sexed by color at hatching. Their color is 'linked' to their sex; hence why they are called sexlinks.
Because they are cross breeds, they will not breed true and you will not be able to guess which chicks are male and which are female based on coloring.
