Don't laugh, I'm a newbie to this whole genetics thing... but I'm totally researching right now.. Here's my scenario. I have a couple Red Sex-Link hens that I bought at TSC. They were sold to me as RIR's but they are definitely NOT. So I have done a little research and found that probably either the mom or dad was a true RIR... right? So my question is, if I got a true RIR rooster, what kind of chicks would I get? I understand this is a totally newbie question. I'm so sorry for my ignorance. But I'm trying to learn. Thanks! I'm also thinking that they breed them this way so pullets are easily recognizable? Not sure how you can sell them as RIR's... but whatevs. ETA: Basically what I'm asking is if I get a RIR rooster, will I get RIR roosters, and sex-link pullets.
