    I am sure I saw a post on here a few weeks ago that seemed to answer my question, but I cannot find it nor remember (was not what I was looking for at the time).

    I have a barred roo in with partridgeish EE hens (one is blue partridge). There is also an EE roo, but my question is with the barred roo over the EE hens, will I get any barred chicks? Also, will they be sexlinked (that would be too cool [​IMG] )?

    Yes, barred.
    No, sexlink. For that you need barred hen and non barred roo.
