    RIR rooster over Barred Rock Hens gives you Black sexlinks
    male chicks hatch with a white spot on their heads and feather out barred, hen chicks not.
    BO rooster = pretty similar result... hens usually a bit more colorful, still mostly black
    RIR over NH = darker red than NH in my experience.
