    Hi everyone when you use these crossings

    Silver Male x Golden Female = Silver females and yellow/golden laced males
    Golden Male x Silver Female = Gold Females and yellow/golden laced males

    Can you tell he chicks apart as soon as they hatch from either crossing?

    Actually the gold make x silver female will give you sex linked babies.

    The silver male x gold female will not.
