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.
