    I am new to chicken breeding and especially to sex linking. I just hatched out some chicks from a Cucko Morans Roo and RIR and Red Sex link hens. I am wondering if these will be sex linked and if so how can I tell if they are roos or hens? Some are black a yellow spot on the head and some are yellow with a few black spots on them. A few are gold or gold with brown markings. I am also wondering if they will barred or not. Any help will be appreciated.

    The ones with the spot on the head are roos and the solids are female

    Are the ones with the spot on the head a solid color?

    Usually the females will get the barring thanks to dad and the males will be a solid color thanks to mom. I have recently hatched out a bunch like that with RSL roo and Dominique hens.

    All of the black ones have a yellow spot on the head and a silver/yellow breast. I will add a photo as soon as I figure out how to add it.
