    Sexlinks are not an actual breed, and there are different varieties anyway (red, black, etc) so it would be hard to say. If the Australorp was black then the chicks will most likely be black. What color are your chicks?

    Depends on what sort of sexlink. Australorp bred to a red sexlink could produce solid white chicks. A black sexlink rooster to Australorp hens will result in about half the chicks inheriting barring.

    What kind of sexlink are we talking about? Was the Australorp the mother or the father?

    The extended black of the Australorp is dominant. The dominant white of the red sexlink hen will modifies black to white. 50% will be solid black, 50% will be white. Some of the white chicks may have a few flecks of black. Males will likely develop red leakage as they mature.
    The get an idea of what the white chicks will grow up to look like, check out some pics of AustraWhites.
