    Males will be barred (from the mom)and females will most likely be solid colored. That's only if the BR is the hen. If the BR is the sire, then all chicks will have some degree of barring.

    Quote:Yes. That's something I've actually done and the pullets were black, the cockerals were barred. I love the sex link projects!
