    A RIR roo on a barred rock hen is a sex-link, often called a black star, with male chicks hatching with a white dot on their heads, and females solid black.

    I'm not sure about the RIR on a white rock.

    This information comes from Ideal's site: Brown Sex Links are a breed cross using Rhode Island Red males and silver factor White Rock females. The chicks can be separated by sex at the time of hatching since the females are primarily red and the males are primarily white.

    If it's all black its a BSL female, if it's black with a white spot on the head it's a BSL male. If its red, its a RSL female, if it's white, it's a RSL male.
