    In order to breed Black Sex-Links, I know you need to cross a non-barred, non-white male over a barred female. Generally, red gene males are used, such as Rhode Island Reds for the classic wheaten look. But, a Light Brahma is neither white or barred, so would it work as a male in this cross? The chicks would look odd, I'm guessing feathered legs, but would they still be sex-linked? I know it all depends on genetics, but I'm thinking about breeding and hatching out some eggs, and I happened to have both breeds, so it made me wonder. Thanks for any feedback.
