    Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! You should get blue or black pullets and barred (blue or black) cockerels, they should be sex linked but not all blacks.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. Yes, you can get Black Sex Links with that combination. The newly hatched male chicks will have a white spot on top of their heads and the top of the newly hatched females' heads will be solid colored. I would expect them to be egg laying machines as well. :eek:) Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in hatching your BSLs.
