    hypothetical.

    i have a barred rock rooster that fertilizes a buff rock hens egg.

    egg hatches... its a half buff rock/ half barred rock chick. it turns out to be a male chick.

    once it gets older, it makes sweet, pasionate love to a barred rock hen.... does it still put off a sex link chick? or does it being half barred cancel the sex link out?

    No second generation sex-links will be sex-links. Except in a few auto sexing True breeds

    By "sex-link" are you referring to the head spot? If so you should be able to tell Male from Female.

    Quote:Technically the Barring Gene is sex-link/auto-sex gene and is the gene that is is used to make a Black Sex-link. [most any color male over a barred female]

    The number 1 rule is that two sex linked chickens can not be crossed to produce sex linked offspring.
    and hen sex-links will not be barred so no you can never breed two sex-links and get sexlinks! you can breed red sexlink to a non sexlink barred hen. but thats not two sexlinks
    And he/she will not Have barred hens so in his/her case she will not have second generation sexlinks.

    If you are referring to Red or Black Sex-link, I know but this has nothing to do with what the OP asked nor what I posted.

    you can breed red sexlink to a non sexlink barred hen.

    Barring is a Sex-linked/auto-sex gene. Refer back to my last post for links.


    The OP is breeding a Barred Rock Rooster to a Buff Rock Hen so all offspring would be Barred,
    If the OP took a Barred Rooster from there first cross and bred it to a Barred Hen then the offspring should be all head spot sex-able as with most all Sex-linked barred chickens.

    Quote:They can sexed by there head spot at birth.
    By crossing Barred Rock / Barred Rock or Dominique / Dominique there chicks are sex-able a birth by there head spot.
    They can be considered a Sex-linked and or a Auto-sex.
