    I was browsing through the breeds and dont see those listed. The ranch store where we got our chicks said ours were black sex links? Well 2 of the 6 anyway. When I googled it, it said they are a result of the mom being a Barred Rock...but that breed isnt listed either. Confused...

    Thanks for that link, smokeykk. I picked up 3 BSL last week along with 3 Buff Orpingtons.

    Thank you, I wonder why BYC doesnt list them in the breed directory? Hmm.

    Because it isn't a breed. It is a hybrid. Usually, but not necessarily, a Red roo over a Barred Rock hen.
