    I have 2 chicks around 3 weeks old that were crossed with a cream leg bar hen and a red sex link cock - my question is are they auto sexed chicks? If so one is black and one is cream/white so what sex would they be?

    Getting confused with all the sex link info!

    They are not auto sexed or sex linked. They're cross breed/mutt chicks that should throw out some really pretty colors! But you'll just have to wait for genders, sorry.

    Yep. RSL's will often throw entirely white chicks. [​IMG] Here is one of my RSL crosses with a barred rock dad. All of his kids were barred except the ones from my RSL hen. She threw out 3/4 white chicks. One was barred.
