I'm thinking about trying to hatch some Red Sex Link's.
So.. It took a longtime to go through the entire thread, but I couldn't find any Buff Orph Roo X SLW pics. I know they will be Red Sex Link but would love to see pics before I actually hatch some eggs. Does anyone happen to have this cross? The only thing I've read about them is that sometimes it's hard to tell at hatch male from female, because of the light gold... Is this accurate? And does anyone have pics of this cross?
You know, I might - I had a rooster from just such a cross at one point. Let me see if I can dig anything up. I didn't know he was this cross when he hatched, though, so I can't help on whether they're easy to tell apart as chicks as far as gender goes.
Edit: These are the best I have, it seems. Second chick in on the first picture, first chick in front of the hen in the second picture. The others are pure buff orpinton, and one EE cross. He looked a lot like a SLW when he grew up color wise, but almost all silver down his chest and with poor lacing, but he had buff in his hackles and saddle.
