    I always have RIR, but they are most likely mixes. The hens are in a pen with 2 RIR, 3 SLW, and 3 white rock roos. There are 30-something RIR hens, and some SLW hens. Also a light brahma hen. I can usually tell which eggs are which, so you'd be sure they'd be at least half RIR. Let me know if you're interested.

    I'm not really sure how the sex link thing works. I know that white chickens and red chickens are used for the red sex links, but not sure which is which. And the black sex links have BR and something else, but I was told that the SLW could make sexlinks as well. I guess I should find out huh? We are planning on seperating them soon, so it won't be a factor in another month or so, but right now they are all mixed up. I guess it would depend on which roos bred which hens. We do get pures of the RIR and the SLW, though we don't have any pure white rocks. We have a pullet that is a light grey color all over her whole body, so I have no idea what mix made that! She sure is pretty, wish I could figure it out!
