    if a hen Delaware is bred to a Rooster Barnevelder, will the chicks be sex link colored like when Delawares are bred to RI Reds and NH Reds?

    I had not no, somehow I missed this particular one when I searched

    It looks like probably no though

    Quote: A Barvevenlder male would be a group 2A male and a Delaware is a group 1 female but not one of the two listed that can be crossed to a Barnevelder and achieve sex link chicks
