    Hi..
    I recently hatched some eggs from a breeder and for fun I threw one of my eggs in there as well..Just curious if anyone has any ideas what this resulting chick may look like or would this be considered a Black Sex link? Anyway here are pics of the parents...

    This is Gordon Ramsey he was hatched out of an Olive Egg

    This is Wilma and she is a New Hampshire Red

    ..And this is the best shot I could get of the chick..The one to the left of the Sussex He/she is solid black w/ black legs & Feet with the slightest Red/rust color around the face..

    Thanks!

    Nope, no Sex-links from the pairing. And there's no Red in the breed name New Hampshire [​IMG]


    They'll grow up to be either black with silver on the neck, possibly breast too, or black with gold on the neck, possibly breast too.

    Quote:Cool, Thanks! [​IMG] Also, thanks for the correction on the breed name..I am surprised at that most everywhere I've ever seen the name even in some books it says NH Red..

    It's because hatcheries call them that. The same with the confusion on what Ameraucanas and Araucanas really are versus what hatcheries sell.
