    I have a blue cochin rooster and some barred rock hens. I gave my broody a few eggs to hold her until my Blue Wheaten Ameraucana eggs got here. Well they hatched and one is black with a faint white head spot (almost non-existant) and the other is blue with a faint head spot. The both have white chests and bellies. So would this mean they are roosters? Does the "sex link" characteristics work with any solid color rooster over a barred hen? Barred chicks will be males and solid be females? TIA, Melissa
