Sex link Question

post #1 of 5

I crossed a RIR roo with a Dominique... would the sex link rule for Barred Rocks apply? I believe it is a white dot on the male's head and solid black for female. Thanks.

I also bred a RIR roo over a Cream Legbar. Would I be able to sex these by feathers? Thanks again. I know there are breeding charts, but I couldn't find anything with Cream Legbars or Dominiques.

Yep, your Dominique hen will make nice black sex link crosses with the Red rooster. Any black barred hen (Dominique, cuckoo Marans, barred Cochin, etc..) will work. 

 

In theory, so should the Legbar hen. But, part of the recipe is that one of the birds carry extended black, so the barring indicator (white headspot) is visible against the chick down. Legbars don't have black, so I'm not sure how that's going to work. As the birds age, you'll be able to tell who is barred (males) and who is not (females), but that's after they feather out. 

 

There are some Legbar hybrid threads, you might cruise around them and see if anyone has done that and had good results. 

 

And if you haven't seen it, here's a wonderful post on sex link genes

Thank you. I did a hatch of 5 out of our own eggs. The Dominique's egg was named already "Little Momma." I have three boys and the older two named the Dominique, Black Mamba after the snake, the youngest is 3 and calls her Black Momma. He loves her so much that we added her egg in so she really could be a momma. I guess our chick is Mr. Little Momma now.  :)

Black Mamba,  that always reminds  Of the "Kill Bill  1 @ 2 movies."  His  assassination squad, all women had poisonous snake names.    Lots of blood, gore & worse  but wow, the excellent sword play.
