    Well, I think is should be a sex-link cross, right? Hens solid, roos barred? Could you post pics?
    As far as the cross, any cross will just be the product of it's parents. If the parents are laying stock, the babies will be good layers. These will lay brown eggs, probably very consistently. If you want to rehome mixes, just say they're mixes and show pics of the parents if you have them. Briefly tell what you know about the parent breeds--bred for eggs laying, docility, etc.

    If both of the parent stock were/is pure then your offspring would be Sex-linked Roosters Barred Hens Black.

    Both parents are docile duel purpose birds. Will lay very well and continue through winter.

    Ooh sounds like a good mutt! Hrmm, any health issues, how long they'll live?
    Here's some pictures. The pullets are like this "reverse" barred, as I like to call it, boys are reg. barred and the maybe pullet has the Light Sussex color.
