Cross Breed Questions

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Does anyone know if there are any official or unoffical hybrid names for crossing the following hens with a Rhode Island Red Rooster?

White Rock, Black Australorp, Silver Laced Wyandotte, or Partridge Rock.

I can say they make pretty chicks as I recently hatched some and was curious if they actually had a hybrid name. I am sure they will make good brown egg layers.

Any thoughts and comments would be greatly appreciated!

According to the chart that I have an S.L.W. hen and a RIR Roo makes a Cinnamon Queen. An Austrolorp and a RIR Roo makes a Black Cross. A White Rock and a RIR Roo makes a Red Star. Don't have anything for a Partridge Rock. The Cinnamon Queen and the Red Stars are both sex-link where the pullet chicks will be reddish and the cockeral chicks will be white. Different variations can also be used to get the same result. Such as you can use a New Hampshire Roo in place of the RIR.

Spring has sprung here in the south. Lots of new chicks running all around.  Check out our website for great prices on poultry and livestock products as well as lots of helpful information. Cheep-est prices around and always growing. NPIP #58-1589-E

"Brown Sex Links are a breed cross using Rhode Island Red males and silver factor White Rock females." According to Ideal Hatchery.

Ideal says that Red Sex Links have Delaware mothers but that may be a little too restrictive. Feathersite says, "Red Sex-Links are the result of various crosses." So that should be your Rhode Island Red x White Rock, offspring.

Other crosses are probably not considered named hybrids and not sex links, RIR sire and Australorp dam wouldn't result in any sex linked traits, I don't think.

. . . just some thoughts

That is true about Red Sex-Links. They are a cross between a Deleware Hen and a RIR Roo. A Red Star is a cross between a White Rock and a RIR.
