    Can I use a Buff Orpington Rooster and a Cuckoo Marans hen to get a black sex-link?

    It will work. All you need for black sexlinks is a hen with a barring/cuckoo gene and a rooster that is not solid white and not barred/cuckoo.

    The pullets will have buff leakage on face at hatch no spot, boys will have white face spot on head. I did buff x barred many times.
