A high school Biology student of mine, asked if we could try hatching some of her Bantum's eggs in class and I think the chicks that hatched were sex-linked but I would like your opinion. Her rooster is a Red Pyle Old English Game Bantum and I believe most of her girls are Silver (they look white with a touch of gray in her pictures). Four eggs hatched the week before Thanksgiving. Two of the chicks were red or golden, and two were silver. I looked up information about red sex-linked and it seemed to fit our chicks. So, I figured the gold chicks were girls and the silver two males. Now that we are back in school from Christmas break my student has confirmed that that was correct. Coincidence? Or Sex-linked? Chicks when they hatched. The last day that were in my class before Christmas break (4 weeks).
