    I have a broody buff 'Effy' sitting on eggs from Barred Rock hens and my Buff rooster. So anxious to see how these chicks look!

    Day 21 is September 20th! I have seen pics of this cross breed but this will be the first personal experience. From what I have read as long as the roo is buff and the hens are barred rock then the chicks should be sex-link. Exciting stuff! [​IMG]

    Are you hoping for meat birds out of these? Or will their offspring produce a ton of eggs?
