I have about 38 standard size hens--RIR, EE, Barred Rock, Golden Laced Wyandotte, Silver Laced Wyandotte, couple Light Bramans, couple Red Sex links, Black Austrulorp, couple Cinnamon Queens, etc. All layers. With these 38, I have ONE RIR rooster. I doubt if he can make all the eggs fertile. Right? Our neighbor bought 50 Black Sex Link (I think) pullets last summer. They are Black with a little hint of red on their breasts. There was ONE rooster in the group, and I am sure they would loan it to me. He looks different than the hens--has black & white stripes, sorta. I know you don't get the same quality of hen when you breed a sex link roo and hen, but I wonder if this roo would be ok to use on my regular layers, to hatch some chicks, who should be good layers? Or is the fact that he is a sex link rooster going to make him unsuitable for breeding, to obtain more egg layers from my egg laying flock?
