    Ok I know Bared rock is one breed that can be sexed by its markings as a chick. What other breeds can this be done with, and are there any blue/green egg laying breeds that have those traits? has anyone been able to successfully breed a chicken like that?

    Black stars and red stars are sex-linked birds, mainly because they are a barred rock cross.

    I've never heard of sex-linked easter eggers... [​IMG]

    Double-R Discount Supply has their chicks grouped by whether they can be sexed when they hatch or not. Among them are Giant Cochins, Black Langshans, Marans, Welsummers. They also list green egg laying Ameraucanas as being sexable.
