    Hi, can anybody tell me if crossing a Light sussex cock with RIR hen has sex linked chicks?
    I know that the other way round is

    Thanks, Simon

    Quote:I am far from an expert, but I am going to say no it wont work that way. You should get the real answer soon. There are a few people on here that gather all of that genetic data and carry it with them every laborious day so that the rest of us do not need to be encumbered with it.

    For them I am very grateful.

    I think the males would be gold and the females would be silver. But, would you be able to discern it in the chick down color.......
