If you do can you show them to us?
Would buff orp roo and barred rock hen be sex-link offspring?
Chickngurl hatched some BR over Buff Orps from my Hawkeye way back when. Pretty birds, all with barring, but many with sort of a blonde/gold color around the head and hackle areas. If the Buff Orp was the rooster, I do believe the chicks would be sexlinked, with the cockerels having barring from the moms. Here is the link to some of the crosses she got.
Quote:Very interesting. I wonder if she has pictures of them all grown up now?
I saw some once, but dont know if it was here or if she sent them to me. I'll PM her and see if she will post some if she hasn't already.
These were taken sometime around 4 months of age:
Gold BRXBO pullet, Silver BRXBO pullet, and regular BR
Gold BRXBO pullet
Gold BRXBO pullet (possibly the same one as above)
Silver BRXBO pullet
Pullet w/ silver hackles (same one as above)
Cockerel showing silver
Cockrel showing gold (almost crele-like)
Same gold cockerel at 5 mos
nice! Now I have an idea what to expect from my BRroo and BO hen.
That is so interesting how some are silver and some are gold! That last cockerel is a handsome guy! I love seeing pictures of Hawkeye's kids-still miss the Big Guy so much. Thank you for digging these out for us, Tara.
These are my "crele wyandotte" looking boys.I need your pullets to breed with.
