    You might get better answers posting this on the breeds/genetics/showing board. I think the majority on this board are relatively new to chicken keeping.

    Use the search button and type in "breeding sex links" and I am sure you will find a bunch of post on this subject. I think you need a RIR and barred rock females. I don't think you can use an EE to breed sex-links since an EE is a mutt and you don't know what genes it carries. Even with sex links the roosters will more then likely end up as someones dinner and sex links will not breed true in the next generation.

    I am not sure but I do know that EE's do not breed true. I think if you do the search and find the posts about people who have breed sex links there are only certain breeds that it works with. There are a bunch of post on this subject might just be easier to do the search.
    Here is a great post about sex links hope this helps
