    Alright there is a thread going in another portion of the board and I have questions. With the following what can I do with sex link or auto sex? New Hampshire Red, Buff Orpington, Welsummer, Partridge Rock. From my understanding the welsummer and barred rock will produce a Welbar which is auto sex and can reproduce true when bred back to each other. The sex link will not breed true when bred back to each other. Can any of the above listed breeds be used to make sex linked chicks. Can the Partridge Rock and Welsummer make a auto sex bird?

    The NHR would be a good one for you to use.

    Yes, White Rocks and Barred Rocks or Delwares should be the females. The male should be the NHR.
