    While searching for sex link eggs I came across and auction for
    sex link eggs. I sent the seller a question: What breed rooster and
    hen were used for the Golden Comets?

    Answer, Golden Comet and Golden Comet.

    Not what I was looking for!

    Just curious, what would be the result of the cross?

    It would be a mixture of colours and most probbaly not Sexlinked! And their production skills might not be so good either.

    Don't know if this helps but we have golden comet laying hens. We had a black minorca rooster that we hatched a few eggs from. 2 white and 2 black babies. one each was a pullet and one each a cockerel. So the sex linked didn't work for the second generation. Maybe for a different roo?

    I've never had a GSLmale to use as a breeder but I have crossed many GSLs whith a production red roo and came up with a multitude of different colors and color combos from solid White(male and female), Red and White like the GSLs (male and female), solid Reds(male and female) some darker like the production reds and some lighter like the color of NH reds, and White/ with Barring or Columbian pattern coloring in the neck and tail.

    I don't know if I can help much either, but I bought some birds one time and both males and females were red and white like Golden Comet hens, when I crossed, the males and females can out either red and white like the parents, or red with black repacing the white, but they were not sexlinked. Just thought I'd tell ya.

    I crossed a Golden Comet Rooster with a Buff Orpington Hen.

    4 eggs, 4 chicks, hatched by their "broody" mama Hen.

    3 were pure white (with some very slight, light "specks" of black in the tail-feathers of two.
    1 was red (like a Rhode Island Red).

    I haven't determined the sex of any as yet. They are now 11 weeks old.

    A previous hatch of this "cross" produced a cockerel which looks exactly like a Rhode Island Red.

    If these are from a sexlinked Golden Comet parents (White roo X Red and White hens) , please make sure you let us what you get. I am planning on a layer flock of Golden Comets/GSL hens and a GSL roo ( just because I like the color of the roos), they would mainly be for selling eating eggs but I would still like to know what I would get if I hatched them.
