    You're right- sex-links do not produce sex-linked offspring. They could be any number of colors.

    That's right, they would not be sexlinks, but what you got sounds right, you should get about half that are Black tailed red ( Red Columbain ) like the RIRs, and half that that are white tailed red, like the cinnamon queens. and those colors can be in both sexes.
