    No it won't be a sex link it will without a doubt be a white chicken with some color leakage possible.Red Sex links tend to lay lighter colored tans so eggs will be tinted..you won't have snow white like a white leghorn(even colored leghorns eggs are tinted) but it won't be a dark egg either..you will have a real good layer with nice sized eggs since both are xl egg laying machines.I have to say though most sex links are very docile and leghorns are flighty so expect a more nervous chicken than it's momma but calmer than papa roo.We have both "breeds"really like both.
