    I just wanna say the sex links aren't real good mixes.My sex links(Black)lays tiny light brown eggs.BUT im not saying all are bad.I'd suggest a Red sex link.Those mixes aren't to good at least I don't think good enough to mix.

    I know it's not a normal combo not doing it for egg production. Just wondering if that combo will produce chicks that can be sexed by color. ( I'm getting the eggs from a relative)

    No, the chicks will not be sex linked, you'll have to wait until they grow out to some.

    You can't get any chicks sex linked by down color from a buff Orpington hen, sorry.
