Is It Possible To Sex ISA Brown Mix Chicks?

  1. Can you still sex them as day old chicks when they are half ISA Brown, half something else?

    No - second generation is not sex linked.

    The only way to sex ISA Brown mixed chicks is through vent sexing. The sex-linked trait only lasts one generation.
