    Ok, so if you breed black sex link hens to a barred rock rooster, what does that make the babies?

    Should you be able to tell what sex they are as chicks by their looks?

    Has anyone had this cross? How big did they get and how early?

    That makes them crossbred chickens that will lay medium/large brown eggs. The hens that is - cockerels will be excellent roasters.
