    I am looking at getting some nice chocolate orphingtons. The roo is chocolate and their are chocolate hens and one black hen. Is I get the black hen and put her under the chocolate roo will her chicks be sex linked? Maybe I should just get the chocolate hens?

    Just bought a trio of Chocolate Bantam Orpingtons. They are out of solid chocolate and chocolate cuckoo. I was told I should get both varieties. I also thought of getting a black hen to go with this trio?
