    Both the Barred Rock and the Delaware hens will produce black sexlinks when paired with the Black Australorp rooster. With the Rhode Island Red rooster, the Barred Rock will produce black sexlinks and the Delaware will produce red sexlinks. There will no sexlinking from the White Leghorn or the Australorp hens.
