    If I breed a lorp roo over some white leghorn hens, will this produce sex link chicks, What I would like to get is some good egg laying blue hens out of the cross is this possible

    I don't believe blackXwhite is a sexlink. No idea about your other questions though.

    I googled it and found:

    Sex links:

    ROo: Rhode Island Red or a New Hampshire

    Hens-
    For blacks: use barred rock hens

    You can use White Rocks or Silver Laced Wyandottes

    Red Sex links: Rhode Island White x Rhode Island Red, and Delaware x Production Red.
