    Go for it. I have crossed my lite sussex bantams with a barnvelder rooster. Have produced lovely off spring . Brown chicks are hens and the white or multi coloured white chicks are roosters. That is a bonus. Don't think the self sexing happens if the sussex is the rooster

    I had a trio of barnevelders that didn't lay or anything and put them with the broody hen that's in my pp but nothing happened unfortunately... I've been looking for the same.
