    I'm in Arizona for a week and trying to find chicks to take home. I found this ad on craigslist, but I think all the offspring from these mixes could be sexed at hatch. Am I correct in thinking I would be getting all cockerels?

    No you wouldn't be getting sex links. The main sex-link crosses are RIRXBR, RIRXSLW, and I believe RIRX Light Sussex. You would likely get both roos and pullets with these babies. Being crossed with Marans, depending on the quality of the stock you could get some dark egg layers.

    Most them yellow ones are probably from the Leghorn hens.
    and NOT sexlinked.

    The ad itself says that they are straight run [​IMG] The only ones that would be sexlinked are a solid colored roo (the Marans) x BR hen but I only see one dark chick in the pic, so that's not worth it.
