    Barred Rock hen and New Hampshire rooster. That is how they make black sex links, but they use Rhode Island Red roo, which is similar.

    Oh ok that's interesting! Another thing I just realized today is all of the barred rock/ new Hampshire hens came out like sex links and the Roos look like barred rocks.
