    I would have known if I did the search but I just did.Stuck random eggs under a hen.

    I have a newhmaphsire rooster.

    Well one of the chicks came out barred and is 3 months and is continued to stayed barred as he grew older.

    I got on the internet and found out Nh roos over barred rock hens creates black sexlinks,and that roos stya barred and slowly get a little redder as they grow older anyone ever had this are they good roosters?

    You can make a black sexlink using just about any rooster and any barred/cuckoo hen. I've got a black sexlink Easter Egger rooster in my flock right now.
