    Wanted to get some feedback on if anyone has breed Sex Links with other breeds. I have a mixed gamefowl rooster who has breed with my girls. A andver bantam of mine hatched the egg and out came a beautiful pattern on the chick. Thinking about hatching more but waiting to see how the young chick looks when fully grown. I attached a pic to show the pattern.[​IMG]

    From what i understand, a sex-linked chicken will not, when bred, result in a sex-linked offspring.

    I've bred some red sex links to various roosters. it's kind of a genetic crapshoot, especially when the rooster is mixed himself.

    Just be aware the juvenile plumage is going to change as that bird grows out.

    That's what I was thinking, a genetic crap shoot. Well hopefully the plumage doesn't change much, it's pretty cool looking as it is.
