    I've read on the forum that a golden laced wyandotte rooster crossed with a silver laced wyandotte hen will produce sex linked chicks. I was wondering if there is a specific name for this cross. Also, if anyone has pictures or experience with this cross I'd love to hear about it.

    Thanks!

    It is true, and there is no specific name for them. I'd call the females gold laced and the males silver laced, that's what they're going to look like.

    When they feather,Ss+Males tend to have a yellowish tinge compared to SS in my experience.
