I found these two Sex-link chickens at my local feed store, they were so pretty and unusual with their purple feathers, that I had to bring them home...not knowing much about sex links. I knew enough at the time to know that one is female and one is male...at least I think so... Now that I have learned more and know that I cannot breed these two to have more sex link babies... I am trying to decide if I should keep the rooster. I definitely don't need another rooster... I know the females are very good egg layers...so I will definitely keep her... So, my question is... if they do breed, what do I end up with? Will the male just basically reproduce RIRs or whatever other chicken was used?? Can either of these be used to breed with another type of chicken and get sex-links? Basically, why would I want to keep the rooster (other than the fact that he is pretty, lol)???
