    What colors would I get if I crossed a Delaware rooster and Dark Cornish Hen? Would the offspring be sex-linked?

    Oh, that's an interesting cross! They might be sex-linked. It all depends whether or not Dark Cornish are geneticaly gold, which I don't think they are. I think they're autosomal red. Give it a shot though! I'm really curious what comes out; whether or not Cornish are gold. If they hatch sex-linked, then they are gold.
