    Hmm...Nice Birds. I agree with the middle three. Not too sure about the first one. But she is a real looker. [​IMG] The last one does look like a Plymouth Rock. [​IMG] There all very nice whatever they are. [​IMG]

    I think Gerdy is a Production Red / RIR and Atilla is probably a white rock. I think you have the others right. Beautiful girls [​IMG]

    Yolko Ono - Black Sexlink

    Gerdy - Red Sexlink or Rhode Island Red (depending on the cross, some Red Sexlink hens are dark red with black tails, looking just like an RIR. The most common example would be Rhode Island Red x Delaware.)

    Dumpling - Red Sexlink (aka Golden Comet, Cinnamon Queen, Red Star, Gold Comet, etc.)

    Omellete - Easter Egger

    Atilla - White Plymouth Rock

    Thanks [​IMG] {the whole sexlink thing confuses me?} They aren't listed in books or online?

    Quote:I agree. There's a section on Sexlinks on here with LOADS of info.

    They're basicly taking two pure breeds and breeding them together (only 1 generation) so they can be sexed by their down feathers as chicks. They're usually some of the best production birds.
