    I am thinking about doing some sex-link hatching but have a couple questions? A red-sex link means the hen is red? What color are the roo's? With a black sex-link the hen is black, what is the color of the roo?

    I have a red star (sex link) hen, and she started as a reddish tinged chick. Red star roos are white, and the male chicks are lighter than the female chicks. I'm not sure about black sex links; I'm sure a Google search might help there.
