    Can anybody show me a picture of these chicks? I'm about to be hatching some of these sex links. A friend already hatched some and I'm hoping to help him sex them but I cannot find an example or picture of RIR x BR chicks to save my life!

    It's the typical, commercial pairing used to produce the vast majority of commercially available black sexlinks. They will look just like the ones that you can order from hatcheries.

    Well I'll keep looking for pics then. I know what they are, I'm just not sure what they look like. Like I said, I have the RIR roo and BR hen I'm going to be hatching 21 chicks in the next few days. Just trying to find pictures of some.

    Females will be solid black at hatch, might have a bit of white/yellow on the throat area. Males will have a white spot on the back of the head. Typical black sexlinks.

    Thank you! We thought they were pure barred rocks but you should see barrong on the chicks and they are solid black with black feet
