    I just hatched chicks from my EE rooster crossed with my Buff orpington hens. Would this cross possibly make sex-links?

    After doing some reading on here about sex links I am still confused.

    The chicks are two different colors. Some are reddish colored with brown chicmunk coloring on head and back and the others are white/cream with chipmunk coloring and have "dark eyeliner."

    Thanks so much for the help!!

    Nope, You need a Gold roo on Silver hens to make Red Sexlinks, not the other way around.
