    Hey everyone I have 2 Silkie hens and they went broody so I put eggs from my barred rock rooster crossed with ISA brown hens under them.

    I'm inexperienced at this so a lot of the eggs didn't hatch and 3 of the 5 baby chicks died. There are 2 baby chicks left that survived and they are yellow with gray wings.

    Is there a sex link with a barred rock roo/ISA brown hen combination?

    That cross would not produce sex-linked chicks. The hen would need to be barred.
