    I have been planning to get a quality strain of Delawares soon. My better half really wants me to get some Black Copper Marans. While doing some research it seems like the BCM roo over a DEL hen would create sex-link chicks. Does anyone know this to be true?

    I've searched the sex-link information thread and Marans are not listed on the main post. Doing a search of the entire thread did not turn up an answer in the first several pages.

    I would be more inclined to get the Black Copper Marans if they sex-linked with the Dels. Thanks!

    i think the only Marans that you can use for sex-linked chicks are Cuckoo hens.
