    Can any of the bantam breeds be used to create sexlink chicks?

    Well I guess if certain breeds that are used to create a sexlink are available in bantam variety then I believe that if you crossed one of those breeds than you could make a bantem sexlink. If you think about it a bantem is just a miniture version of its large fowl counter part so genetically the same.

    So in theory a RIR bantam roo over SLW bantam hens should work. Thanks

    Yes if in large fowl the two breeds create a sexlink.
