If you put a buff rooster over a white hen would the chicks be sex link?

No, it usually does not work. The hen has to be a specific genotype to work. Most people think you can cross just any gold male with a silver female and get red sex linked. The birds must be specific genotypes for the sexing accuracy to be above 90%.

Buff male birds can be used for sex linked crosses but the female chicks tend to have a down color that is difficult to classify.

I have written over 30 pages in my book just on red sex linked crosses. It is actually more complicated than most people realize.

Wheaten or brown downed birds with columbian restrictors?​
