    Not always, it depends of the 2 breeds used to create the Red Sex-linked offspring.

    As for your crosses. Assuming that BO is Buff Orpington and SLW is Silver Laced Wyandotte.
    Red Sex-link male over Buff Orpington female - offspring should be Red with a percentage of the chicks having White tails and hackles and a percentage having Black tails and hackles.
    Red Sex-link male over Silver Laced Wyandotte - offspring should be Hens White Laced Red and Black Laced Red Roosters White Laced Yellow/Golden and Black Laced Yellow/Golden.
