    Hi,
    I was wondering if since a black sex link a a road island red crossed with a barred rock, can you cross a road island red with a cuckoo maran and get the same thing?

    There are several breeds that can be used to created sex linked chicks - and, yes, a RIR roo over CM hens would result in black sex link.

    Definitely. Any barred or cuckoo hen will work.
