    Can you tell males from females when they are born and does anyone have a picture of what each would look like as chicks and or adults? What do you call them other than cross breeds or mutts?

    This mating will produce white male chicks and golden or reddish females at hatch. These sex-link hybrids go by many names but it is a basic type of red-sex link. Here is a link that has a number of sex-link hybrids of various names at various stages.
