ooooo now im very intrigued
something I will be trying out
I agree with Ridgerunner about buff.
The buff orpington carries a gene combination that can remove black from the head, neck and varying amounts of the black from the body of a normally black bird. The chicks will be black with varying amounts of dark brown on the face and head or have dark brown down. Either way the chicks can be sexed at hatch. The adults will be black with burnt orange/buff on the head and neck with some non-black on the body. The amount of no-black can vary from very little to an almost non-black and smutty body. The barred males will have an even lighter non-black color than non-barred females.
dangerzone where in the PI are you located ? look up fellow byc,er ozpat he too is in the PI and has a breeding program and poultry relocation program going on .
What about black or blue jersey giant rooster over a barred rock hen?
I think that wont work
the main thing is light roo over barred hen
I was meaning as the black sex link. the female needs to be barred and male dark
Are the White Bresse considered silver? Or are they like Leghorns and would not work for sex links?
I have a red brown ameraucana roo and two of my hens are cuckoo marans and golden cuckoo marans. I hatched out some eggs a few months back and three of them were black with yellow spots on their heads. They are feathering out barred. When they hatched they looked like pictures I have seen of black sex link chicks. Could they possibly be sex link?? Could he be crossed on my SL wyandotte for sex link chicks or do I need to find a NHR or a RIR roo for those?
