    I cannot seem to find any blue sex link chicks or even fertile eggs. Would really appreciate any info. If anyone has any and would be willing to ship that would be great!

    A few of us had been working on blue sex link projects over the last few years. What we found was the blue diluting the down made the head spot unreliable to accurately sex the birds, and I think most of us backyarders gave up on the projects.

    You might look at My Pet Chicken. They came out with a ton of "designer" birds this year, various crosses that are sex linked or blue, they probably have one that's both.
