    What happens when you cross a black sex link with a mix roo. Will the pullets still be black females and roos have white? Not sure what my roo is mixed with.

    A black sex link is already a hybrid, a mutt. Putting a mixed-mutt roo over a BSL will produce a mutt of even more muttiness. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Quote:You will have to post pictures of the male- then a person could at least guess at the possibilities. Chicken genetics is complicated so telling that the roo has white is not enough information to make an educated guess.

    Cool I found a pic that looks just like him under "red star". It does not matter to me if they are mix's or not I just want good egg layers.
