    So we've crossed our Light Sussex with our Golden Legbar and come up with something that I think is similar to a Silver Legbar... What do you think?? xD Sorry about the photo quality (if they even show up lol) this pic is of an adult one,[​IMG]
    This one's of a younger one, they're sex linked too. The females have a dark arrow on their head. The boys are plain.

    I believe the they would not be Legbars. They are uniform the first generation but next generation you will probably see a huge variety of traits.

    So they're first crosses? I'm guessing that would be like ISA Browns, I've been told that breeding them doesn't result in the proper breed either

    If the hen was the Light Sussex (silver color) and the rooster was the Legbar (gold color); then yes, you have a non-typical red sexlink.
