    Hi all! I'm new to hatching, and the genetic end of things is tough for me to wrap my head around! I have chicks hatching right now that came from a red sexlink hen, and barred rock rooster. Is it possible they will be sexlinked as well? I have one that looks to have a white spot on head, black body, the way the barred rock male chicks do. Also, same question, with a welsummer hen. Would love your feedback! TIA!! :)

    When using barred rocks to make sex-linked chicks, the hen is the barred rock. Using a barred rock rooster will not work.
