    Ok so I just bought my first chickens. I bought 9 red sex link hens. I then came across a white leghorn rooster I decided to buy so I could hatch some chicks as well. Does anyone here know what color the chicks will be from this cross? I'm assuming they will be good producers since both breeds of parents are?
    Thaks in advance

    Welcome to the forum! You've picked a great cross to hatch out, they'll be Production Red babies.
