So when the time comes to breed chickens is it okay to... So hopefully all my chick I get end up being female. However when it is time to breed I plan on just getting a sex link to make thing a bit easier. So would a sex link of red,black, or gold be good males to breed with barred rock and road island red? What is you opinion on cross breeding? Will the chick be more like one parent than the other .or will they be equally mixed. Does that mean the coat my change... Curious creature I am indeed, thank for you time!
