    We just had one of our Barred Rock cross chicks hatch. The mom is a Barred Rock but I am 98% sure that the dad is our Sex link Rooster. (there was a Barred Rock Rooster and a Cherry Egger Rooster with her as well but the sexlink is the dominate rooster and the only one we ever saw mating the hens)
    The chick, I will say She because hopefully thats what SHE is, looks like a Barred Rock she is black with the white head spot , I know with pure breeds you look at the head spot and the legs. She has black stripes on her legs like a female BR but her head spot is long and irregular like a male BR. I will post pics later. It's very cold and she is still very little, she only hatched earlier today.

    Let me know what you think!!![​IMG]
