    Was he "sex-linked" like jaerhons are supposed to be? I mean could you tell when he was born..
    He seemed very red as a young chick, which would indicate a pullet, did he have a spot on his head or no.. pullets that are pure jaerhon have them.

    I would be interested but I am doing a cuckoo/jaerhon breeding right now, the hen went broody...
    Thanks
    Carol
