    If you cross an autosexing rooster (ex: Cream Legbar or Isbar) with a hen that isn’t autosexing (ex: Orpington or Ameraucauna) will the chicks be autosexing?


    What about if you cross an auto sexing Hen (ex: Cream Legbar or Isbar) with a rooster who isn’t autosexing such as an Ameraucauna?

    Does crossing 2 different types of autosexing ex: Isbar x Rhodebar still give you autosexing chicks?

    Thanks so much!

    Crossing an autosexing rooster or hen with a non autosexing bird will not give you autosexing offspring.
    Most times crossing two different autosexing breeds will give you autosexing offspring.

    If you cross an autosexing hen with a non barred rooster you will get sex-links though.

    ETA: Isbars aren't autosexing.
