    I was given two RIR hens/pullets (5 to 6 months old) .
    I have 15 leghorns hen and a leghorn rooster.
    I separated the two RIR hens because the leghorns were mean.
    What will I get if I cross the RIR with the leghorn rooster?
    Will the chicks be sex-linked?
    Please let me know

    No, they won't be sexlinked. The rooster must be gold/red, not the hen.
