I'm on the extremely slow path re: breeding birds. My long term goal is to get a rooster NEXT spring to put over my mixed flock currently consisting of EE (pea comb), RIR (st comb), with addition of RCBL, Dominique, and GLW pullets this spring (all RC). The goal is to have fun, and hopefully end up with pea or rose combed birds that will do very well in my specific climate. I know that a dark colored rooster over Dominique will produce a sex linked bird. I am wondering: If I swap out GLW and get SLW instead, will a dark roo over SLW also produce a sex linked bird? Are pure Wyandottes easy to sex at hatch? Any thoughts re: my plan, and a good rooster candidate? I was thinking about using a black Ameraucana, but perhaps an other RC would be the better choice?
I think I can answer my own question here re: the sex linkage by referring to the sex link charts. Thanks.
