Silver hens, when crossed with a red/gold base color rooster, will produce red sexlinks. Male chicks inherit their mother's silver coloring, pullets will be gold/red.


Marvellous! I also have a light brown little roo (could maybe get away with calling him "gold") so that would work also.

 

You've been so helpful - i really appreciate your advice

 

 

Many thanks

Yeah, the worst thing i did was build another coop with a run to house the pullet in question (no longer in question) and another 9 - kind of a breed-out thing. However, what that actually means is i have more room for more chickens once i introduce the remainder of them to the main flock - great for me, but I'm not sure the wife's too impressed :D
