    I know the opposite breeding results in a sex link offspring, but does this breeding result in sex link as well, or just mutts?

    It's my understanding that it's just mutts. Wish it did work, I've got a nice LS roo I'd like to put to work on a few more hens.

    Do it anyway, cull like crazy, and maybe after a few generations of selectivebreeding ans massive culling, you might have a new breed. If that's what you want, of course.

    They are mutts like all sexlinks.
    I believe the proper name for a Light Sussex X RIR = what is called a Daisy Bell & or a Pied Sussex . [​IMG]

    Pretty much just another sexlink with a pretty name [​IMG]

    Quote:No they wouldnt be sexlinks, the hens would be pure light columbian like the LS and the roos would look similar to LS but would have some gold coloring ( they would be split for both ( Silver and Gold genes)

    Though not sexlinks, they should be some good productive hybrids.
