Well, I have taken some pics of my 3 month old cross chicks that some of you may remember from when they hatched. They are from my cucoo Marans hens and my buff Silkie roo, Maurice. Hatched 6, and 3 are varied colored and 3 are identical black with some gold feathers showing in their necks. I am wondering if this cross made a sex-link cross. Will post a pic of each of the ones I am now suspecting are roos, and a pic of one of the black identical three, who I am suspecting are pullets, if they are sex link. If they aren't then I haven't a clue as to sex yet. All 6 have 5 toes, feathered feet, and small crest. Here is the darker red mottled one. Named Bandit at the suggestion of one of our BYC members. Here is the lighter buff. And the cucoo one. And one of the 3 identical black with red neck feathers. And, at the same time I hatched these, I bought a couple black sex-link pullets at the Cackle hatchery. here is the one I hatched (has foot feathers) and the black sex link from the hatchery. What do you think? Did I hatch Marans/Silkie sex links??
