    I have crossed red sex link with red sex link, got great looking birds.
    (The reason why is because I cannot buy good chickens where I live)
    Has any body done this before? if so what was your result? eggs, health, body etc.[​IMG]

    Not an expert here, but I think a red sexlink is a hybrid that will not breed true, so you're going to end up with Forrest Gump's proverbial box of chocolates. It will be an interesting experiment, though.

    Yes I think you are correct hence I asked the question. My first attempt I got two hens and one male. Excellent looking birds, one female is white and one red / white and the cockrel is all white. He has the build and body shape of a white plymouth rock.
    As they are only 5 months old laying has not commenced but they are doing well health wise.
