    If you breed a RIR male to a SLW female will the offspring be sex-linked?

    How about Buff Orpingtons, can they be used?

    Yes. New Hampshire males over SLW females is the Cinnamon Queen, so you can use the RIR in place of the NH. Not 100% positive, but I think you can use the Buff Orp male for a sexlink as well.

    Or if you want pure Wyandottes, you can breed a BLRW rooster to a SLW hen and all the cockerels will be SLW and the pullets will be BLRW...
