This was my first hatch and I read a lot beforehand but am figuring out I've barely scratched the surface. For my first hatch I crossed the rooster pictured with my Barred Rock Hens and my Easter Egger. I thought the cross with the Barred Rocks would produce black sexlinks, but all the chicks have a lot of blue gray variation along with some black and none of the prominent white mark of a sexlink roo. I will post pictures of the chicks. If they aren't black sexlinks...what are they? And when will I be able to determine pullet or roo?
Below are some pics of the chics from the Barred Rock Hen
