    I was wondering if anyone made this cross, and if so, would the offspring would be considered Black Sex Link? Please provide any pics of the the cross as well. I am planning on making this cross in the spring. I know the typical cross would be RIR and Barred Rock, but I have Dominique hens instead. Any information will be appreciated.

    Thanks!!

    That would be a Black Sex Linked cross. Offspring would look identical to commercial BSLs but likely with a modified rose comb instead of single. Hens would be black with red hackle/breast and cocks would be single barred with potential red leakage.
