I love the Buff Orpington Rhode Island Red Cross birds. I have a huge golden orange rooster that I would love to use to father an autosexing breed. I know I can breed barring into them, but I'm not particularly fond of barring. I'd like to use an alternate color female like a blue, or a laced variety to create a breed that can be sexed at birth. I am trying to understand the genetics, but it's slow going. Can anyone tell me if this is possible?
