Is the BR the roo or the hen? BR roo x RIR hen makes all barred babies from what I've read, but a RIR roo x BR hen = sexlinks and you can tell the males from the females at hatch. (someone please correct me if I am mistaken
Quote:If your rooster is a Black sex-link and the the hen is a Red sex-link and you cross them you will get a vast amount of colors and patterns in the off spring because neither of the parents are pure.
Lets say that you rooster was a Black sex-link out of a Columbian Rock and a Barred Rock cross and you hen was a Red sex-link out of a "Rhode Island White" and a Rhode Island Red there chicks would carry the genetic makeup of all 4 breeds and you could get Black, White, Barred, Barred tailed Whites, Barred tailed Yellows/Gold, Columbian, Black Tailed Yellow/ Golds.
