    I have a young Partridge Rock Roo that will be with my Barred Rock hens in the spring, what will the chicks look like? Will they be sex linked? Any pictures of this cross?

    Yes they will be sexlinked, the males will be barred with red leaking through and the females will be black/red.

    seeing how eb(Brown) is a Direct mutation from Extended Black(E) E should act as Completely dominant over it, making all the birds all black, E/e+ or E/eWh should behave differently from E/eb
