Hi everybody!! I've posted this a couple of places but haven't gotten any responses yet, so I was hoping someone here could help. I just hatched out six sweet little EEs from my own flock. The father is my wheaten Ameraucana cock and the mother is one of my SLWs. I think I may have ended up with sex linked chicks! Four of them have well defined chipmunk markings and eyeliner, and also have brown in their down, while two have very blurry, smudged looking chipmunk markings, little to no eyeliner, and no brown in their down. Would this support the idea that a gold based cock over silver based hens would produce gold based pullets and silver based cockerels? I took a couple pics of the differences for you all to see... Here is a suspected girl. Note the eyeliner and strong chipmunk markings with brown in the down: And here's a suspected boy. No eyeliner, blurry chipmunk markings, and appears to be silver based with no brown in the down: So what do you all think? Are these sex linked chicks? I certainly think they are, but I'm no expert, so I was hoping someone here, perhaps with more experience with sex links could help me. Any and all opinions are welcome! I'm having fun trying to figure this out!!
