    The babies will most likely all be yellow or yellow with some red, since both RIR and SF chicks start out yellow. Any with black wings will be boys. Others will have red/salmon wings and some with red wings may be boys.

    Not sure from your post if they are all banties? If some of the hens are LF, then you may have mid-size birds if the banty roos can get the job done.

    Some will be pure SFs - from the SF hen. The others will be combos of salmon/red and white, some boys will have black...some with feathered legs, beards and/or five toes - I don't know if those characteristics are dominant and/or if your SFs carry both genes....they should all have straight combs.

    They won't be sex linked.
