    They are really pretty. She looks like a CL and he looks Barred Cochin. Do all your male and females of this cross look the same?

    Quote:thas is correct, you CANT use Extended Black to create Gold/Silver Sexlinks... just take a look a the Black Sexlinks, The females are Gold Extended black nonbarred yet they still show cream/silver underdown on their chick down, so this clearly cant be used as proove of the Silver x Gold is not 100% accurate as steen may believe on... here a few pics of the Black Sexlinks as chick, I know that when they mature they will show their red/gold coloration they get from their RIR father... here a Sexlink pullets, on the second pic you can see she is starting to show some of her gold feathers on her breasts(thanks to columbian from RIR father) BUT.. you can still see the white/cream down she stillhas on her throat.. so as I said earlier extended black either E/e+ or E/eWh or E/eb cant be use as gold/silver sexlinks

    Thanks guys for the answer about my proposed CCL Dorking cross.
    I am honestly not trying for anything in particular as I am not a breeder, except for more chickens that lay the blue eggs, in case I lose her to the dreaded fox. (Don't want all my blue eggs in one basket, as it were. the egg custormers LOVE them) but it would be cool to know which were the boys and get rid of them before I get attached. I have way too many boys currently anyway, but I have named them all...
