    I have a chick that came from a blue copper maran over a barred rock hen. It is a solid gray chick. Would that cross make a sex linked chick? So I can assume that since it doesn't have a white spot on its head that it is female?

    Sounds like it's a girl!

    Some colors make that white spot hard to see, but I've been able to easily id it on my blue birds.

    Thanks! I am glad, I don't need anymore roos but I feel like this bird is special so it would be hard to cull later.
