    Can I cross a buff orp roo with a dom/barred rock hen to get a black sex link? Or does the roo HAVE to be a RIR?

    The quick answer would be no, you'll get a mutt.

    Oh, meant to say dom or barred rock, the hen would be pure, not a cross. I am trying to avoid being overrun with so many roosters [​IMG].

    Thanks
