    Howdy. I recently got a small flock of chickens and I had a few questions. Does anyone have any idea what a buff orpington roo/silver laced wyandotte would look like? buff with black speckled hackles and saddle?And if you crossed a buff orp onto a barred rock hen would they be sex linked? This is based on the assumtion that buff is genetically similar to red.

    [​IMG] Hey there. Hopefully you will get someone to answer that who is more schooled in genetics than I am. Good luck. For some reason I am thinking silver is dominant over gold, but I don't know why.

    Hello and [​IMG] !

    Both of the crosses you mentioned would be sex linked, although I've never seen a confirmed pic of a Buff Orp/SLW. On feathersite it says that particular cross is called a Cinnamon Queen, but who knows who sells that cross under that name.

    My Buff Orp x Barred Rock's were definately sex linked!
