    I have a Black English Orphington over some barred rocks. Will the babies be sex link? I have read you can put a black roo over barred rocks but couldn't confirm it would work with an orphington.

    Will the males have white dots on the head or females?

    I know with RIR roo the white dot is boys but could find much on my mix.

    Any help appreciated.

    I believe if a black roo is crossed with a barred famale the offspring would be a black sex link. dont think it matters as long as its not a mixed breed.

    heres a chart i found on another thread...it might not specifically say black orp, but as long as it has the correct genes.

    Yeah i realize, but when i started reading the question, no one had replied yet. obviously u hadnt replied yet when i opened the thread....u can look at the time when the post where submitted, and u only submitted it before me by 4 minutes, and it took me time to find the chart.
