From other research that I have done I understand that sex-linked chickens do not breed true. I also understand that you should not try to breed a male RSL to anything because you will not get too many desirable traits. My question is: 1.) I have several RSL hens and a RIR male. Will that produce off spring that are good for meat and eggs and are genetically closer to the RIR strain? or will they be useless? 2.) If I take the love chicks (hen) from the above pairing and breed them back with a RIR ROO will I get the RSL again? Or should I breed a Roo from them to a White Rock and get a better RSL? THANKS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
