    Wow! Thanks, that is a pretty detailed description. It doesn't sound like a cross I will make on purpose.

    Hello everyone, I have here Cream Legbar Silver Sussex cross chicks. I am pretty much 100% sure these are sex linked. I have three more that I have hatched since and they are all just like the little red one. I sure hope I am right anyway. We are excited to see what grows out of these chicks and what color eggs they will lay. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Those are sexlinks. The reds are pullets the yellows are roosters.

    Very nice cross [​IMG]



    edit to ask is it CL roo X SS hens? If yes they are sexlink, if no they are not.

    If they hatched out of a brown egg the pullets will lay green eggs.

    Silver Sussex are ER Birchen at the e locus, a cross between CCL x Silver Sussex would have yielded All black chicks with a headspots..

    Quote:
    Now if the SS he is Not pure and maybe she was cross with Light Sussex I would agree that the chicks would be e+/eWh where the e+ comes from the CL male and eWh(wheaten) comes from the Light sussex side of Silver Sussex mother, the Mother would have to be ER/eWh instead of pure ER/ER... but thats the ONLY way as if the hen is PURE then she is not the mother and you would have to investigate what other pullets or hens could be the possible mother... she would have to be Silver as I see the clearly Sex linked nature of such cross(gold females and Silver males)

    I was thinking of light Sussex when I agreed the chicks were sexlink. Hmmmmm they sure look like sexlink chicks.
