I like to hatch my own, in my incubator, but I also like the extremely productive lines of layers developed by Hendrix genetics. I have 23 Amberlink hens, that are almost 100% productive, laying 23 eggs daily at least 6 days a week. I put 3 ISA brown roosters in with them, and after a month, started saving eggs for incubation. The Amberlink, is a sex linked cross where the hens are white and roosters are brown. The ISA is reverse where hens are brown, and roosters are white. I was expecting my offspring to be 75% white, because I was breeding white to white, but both sides carried brown genes. Some told me to expect 50%/50% as grandparents were that ratio. Well they are hatching as we speak.So far 67 white chicks and 7 brown chicks. I am hoping that parents being un- related will allow the hybrid vigor to carry on for 1 more generation with highly productive layers. No, they will not be color sex linked, but should lay lots of eggs. If they turn out to be laying machines, as I expect, next year I may put a Tetra Brown Rooster over my pullets and hatch another round. The Tetra Brown was developed by another poultry genetics giant to be very similar to the ISA brown.. Anyhow, it should be unrelated to my crosses, and also be a white rooster.I do not care about sexing on hatch day, because I raise up the roosters to eat. Anyone else think my plan will work?
