    Makes sense that the girls would be white and the boys would be what...barred or black?? (Not as read up as I should be) I just know that the girls have doulbe bars...right?

    No....just the opposite the boys would be white and girls would be single barred.... ok...I'm confused! LOL

    To sex-link black, you need a barred hen and a non-barred rooster. The barring will show up in the males and females will be black. [​IMG]

    Barring from roosters is dominate, so both sexes would end up with the barring.

    This is not a sexlink since all chicks will have barring from the sire like ChiknGurl says.
