Curious if were to hatch chicks from out barred rock hens bred by our black sex rooster would we end up with black sex links ? Or would it just be a barnyard mix?

We also have a deleware,golden orpington and either a barnyard mix or a RIR.

Any help appreciated!!

Would you be able to sex the chicks since the rooster is a sex link but the hens are barred ? Or would I need a full breed RIR rooster to accomplish that

No, you wouldn’t be able to sex the chicks from their head spots. You don’t have to use a RIR rooster, just one that isn’t barred.
