    Yes, both will produce sex-links:

    Buff Orpington over Barred Rock = Black Sex Link
    Buff Orpington over Silver laced Wyandotte = Red Sex Link (will probably have rosecombs-at least part of them will)

    Heeeeeey while we're here... do you mind if I hijack this to ask if my little black chick from a Australorp hen and a Red Sexlink Rooster might be sexable right now. [​IMG]

    Quote:Nope, that baby is not sex-linked in color. [​IMG] You can't use a sex link to create more sex links.
