    Bantamizing genes can be sexlinked eg in sebright, rosecomb and probably most bantams.

    IMO most chickens are sex linked so egg producers can select the pullets...bantams are generally not raised for egg production so sex links aren't common. That doesn't mean that the color genes aren't present and could be crossed to make the desired sex link...again imo
