    Well, if a black sex link is actually half rhode island and your hen is really full rhode island, then a good portion of them will be red. A few males may turn be barred like the dad, if i understand the sex linking. And a few hens will be blackish. With some other mixes included.

    Quote:color sex linking is only good for the first cross though
    a sexlink x sexlink does NOT = color coded babies!

    Basically you'll end up with a lot of mixed up colored birds, hardy dual purpose looking and probably brown egg layers.
    Production Mutts if you will. [​IMG]
