    So I understand about the sex linkage with color (black sex link, red ect.) and the slow/fast feather growth sex links, and was just reading an old thread about leg color sex links. Are there any other traits that can be sex linked? I looked up about combs and only found 1 thread that said it isn't a sex link trait. Is there anything else?

    will Yield Chocolate Females and Black Males(the males will carry one copy of the chocolate gene, but since its recessive it wont show)
