    I think it's a Black Sex Link female , so I would say that the father is the Barret Rock.

    In order to have sexlinked offspring , the hen must be silver based and the roo must be red/gold based.

    The chick in question may look like a black sex link female but it cannot be if its mother is red/gold based.

    Why don't you list the breeds of hens and roosters that you have. That would give us a good starting point to quess with.

    Or a barred hen under a solid roo, which is kinda what the darker chick looks like, but it's also just a common mixed breed color.

    That pretty barred rock roo would have thrown barred offspring, so he's not the daddy of either chick. If your only other roo is that nice red fellow, he's the daddy.

    And do you know for sure the buff orp laid the egg, not just brooded someone else's egg?

    The mom. Was supposed. To be a BO. However chancesare its not. Due to colouring. The others. Are RIR. BR. Or RSL. That red guy was a "pullet " in our purchase. Of RIR or the RSL. Maybe jumped in wrong bucket at the farm store :/

    If you have a Barred Rock hen, then she's the mother and the father is the red rooster.
