My EE was at POL but didn't lay until 22ish weeks.

They were white with black markings like that one and brown with black markings.

I can't breed anymore Delaware jersey crosses because she now is mating with my silver sebright. The red sex links I think are the only ones mating with my black jersey giant.
It sounds to me like most of your chicks have red sex links as mothers. Do you have a picture of your Delaware?

It looks like he has a pea comb in that picture, which is weird if he's supposed to be a buff orpington x black jersey giant. Pea combs are another dominant trait that neither of those breeds have. Unless you have a buff EE with pink legs I'm not sure how to explain that.

It's a buff Orpington mix... It's not from my eggs so no jersey giant
