    I have been looking for the name of a chicken that is produced by crossing a RIR with a NH. All I can find is "Brinkotter". No other info. So, is anyone familiar with this cross? Is there any sex-linkage involved in the cross? If not, then an order of pullets could also include roos?

    Yes, but in that pic, which I have seen, doesn't that chicken have slate colored legs?

    A red bird crossed with a red bird will not produce SLs. You'd just end up with a red bird (you could call it Production Red).

    Any order of pullets has a small chance of including roosters. Most hatcheries will only guarantee their gender ID up to 95% of the order (allowing for the occasional oopsy rooster). If the hatchery is offering a Production Red order, then they have gender IDed your order through means other than sex-linked color.

    You'd just have a generic red bird, a hatchery red, production red, cherry egger, whatever. Not a breed, not sex link. Just a brown egg laying red bird.
