    I have a Patridge Rock roo and several different kinds of hens. I know that a Red Sex Link is created from two different breeds. And that is where my knowledge on chicken genetics ends.[​IMG]

    If I hatch eggs from my roo and Rhode Island Red, Australorp, White Legern, Speckeled Sussex, what will I get? A bunch of mutt chickens? (And don't get me wrong, I am ok with that, just wondering)

    Thanks a bunch!

    The RIR will result in alot of Red Quills,
    the Australorp, with Black hens, and Copper Roos
    the White Leghorn with Sexlinks! (hens White-laced partridge, the cocks whitish)
    and the Speckled sussex with more Red quills

    There wouldn't be any sex-links out of your crosses.

    Partridge Rock rooster over -
    Rhode Island Red Hen - Red offspring with little to no Black ticking
    Australorp - Black offspring males having some gold in hackles, wing bow and sickles
    White Leghorn - White offspring may have some Black ticking
    Speckled Sussex - Offspring should be poor Speckled/Spangled pattern to Red with random White and Black ticking.

    Thank you both for sharing! I really don't like paying for chicks/eggs to hatch when I have a quite capable roo and hens to create their own incubating eggs for me. However, some days, I think that I want a flock of true breed chickens. Guess I have to make up my mind what I want! [​IMG]

    You can use a Partridge Rock roo to make sex links, but you need a hen that either has the silver gene or a hen that is barred. None of your hens meet that criteria. All you'll get is mutts. Mine are all mutts by the way.

    When you cross a Partridge Rooster over a Rhode Island Red Hen there offspring in most cases are

    White Leghorns are Dominate White

    When you cross a Partridge Rooster over a Speckled Sussex Hen there offspring should be split for Mottling

    Oh boy, Partridge Rocks are some of my faves . . . so pretty! I'm getting some chicks in March, as well as some Australorps, they're cute too. And RIRs are always good to have around . . . you have a good eye for breed choices!
