    that cross sadly doesn't make a sexlink, it would have to be a red roo over a light hen(barred, silver, columbian etc).

    I agree, your birds are reversed for sex link chicks. You're going to have mixed breed birds, and you'll have to wait for the regular sexing signs--large comb, thick legs, color, etc.
