    I have a pair of Black Sexlinks I have in a coop together, their eggs ive placed in an incubator should be hatching in the next couple of days. Curious as to what I should expect. What coloring should I expect? Have any one of you tried this before? If so have any pics?

    The most probable 1 in 6 outcome is barred and black birds of both sex. 1 in 57 chance you'll get red columbian and then the chances are slim but about every color and combination you can think of can hatch.

    You'll get 25% solid pullets, 25% barred pullets, 25% single barred males and 25% double barred males.

    They'll be mostly black, you may get a touch of red leakage on the pullets, and the males will have leakage similar to your male bsl.
