sex link ameraucana?

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.

Thanks, I wasn't sure if it would work with the ameraucanas or not.

Wheaten or brown downed birds with columbian restrictors?​
