    I have RIR - Delaware mix Hens and Roos. What if a Mixed Roo mates with a Mixed Hen when do you get? Mutts? Sex Links? or another name? Can you still sex day old chicks by color or because the parents are both mixed breed color sexing won't work anymore? Any information anyone can give me will be really helpful. Thanks!!

    Basically you'll get a mutt. Depending on the rooster mix though they should be good layers.

    Sorry but they won't be sex-links. Just mutts who should be pretty good layers. [​IMG]

    If both hens an roosters are a first generation mix of RIR and Delaware you should get some RIR-like chicks, some Delaware-like chicks and rest should look like their parents....
