Does anyone know what the hybrid combo of these birds are? Are they first generation? What would you get if you hatch eggs from them? More of the same? Thanks:>)

I am guessing they are just like any other commercial sexlink, which means this is a F1 cross. Like with any other sexlink, Breeding a Shaver hen to a Shaver roo will not result in sexlink chicks.

The image they have on that website that has been posted by Yamon, is the same picture Millers hatchery(in Alberta) uses for their "Red Sussex cross" in their catalogue, I wonder if they are the same thing, if so the father is a RIR and the hen a light Sussex. If not, oh well, we know it has to be a red roo over a hen with a silver gene.
