    Does anyone have any of these as chicks or as adults? I have some in my incubator and the rooster in with the flock the eggs came from is New Hampshire Red. Also, does anyone have pictures of chicks or adults mix between a New Hampshire Red/ Buff Orpington

    New Hampshire X Barred Rock is a typical Black Sex Link cross. They will be sexable at hatch; pullets will look like a typical Black Sex Link pullet (black with a red hackle), and cockerels like a BSL cockerel (single barred).

    NH X BOs will have intermediate color and body shape between the two parents.

    Agree with QM. You have a classic black sex link cross in the first case. I've not done the second myself, but I've seen a lot of pics online. They're usually large fluffy white skinned (white is dominant) orange-ish birds.
