    THe mother is a partiridge colored EE.

    So who is the father? A black sex link ( RIR x BR) or a silver spangled hamburg?

    Thank you.

    A picture would help.
    But if your are asking if you can make a sex link from that cross, then no you can't.

    That does not make sense. Either you know who he is and what he looks like, or you do not know who he is, but you DO know what the choices are, and what THEY look like.

    HE is not a WYANDOTE he a EE cross.

    I used the pic because that is his COLORING that I am trying to convey.

    The link you provided shows many drawings. We really need to see a photo of the specific bird, and we need to see photos of the choices for the father. Looking "like" a partridge wyandotte does not give the full story. There are a lot of little details that can convey different information. For example, does the mix really have duckwings, or are they crowwings? Are the hackle shafts black, or ground colour? Gold or red? Or some of both? What does the bird's comb look like? Skin and leg colour?

    Q. WHich male is the father of Son #1? Is this a red base or a black based that is modified?

    Q.Son #2 is fathered by Black Sexlink because he is the only source of the barring. I'm trying to understand the feather color. ANd what this says about the mother's color genetically.

    My head is in a twist trying to understand.

    I would like to know if either male can be used in siring RED sexlinked chicks.

    THis is what I think I understand:

    Son #1--MAYBE can sire black sexlinks, not red sexlinks.
    Son#2 --very likely can sire red sexlinks.
