    What would i get if i cross a SLW Roo with Red Sussex Hen ??

    Will it just be a mixed breed with no "proper" name,

    I hope it looks like this (Silver sussex)

    It might look similar to a Silver Sussex. It will just be a mixed breed until a lot of work has been put in to it.

    The offspring wouldn't look like Silver Sussex.

    The females would be silver with poor lacing
    The males would appear silver with poor lacing & with leakage especially in the hackles & shoulders. The comb ought to be rose.

    Will it just be a mixed breed with no "proper" name,

    Yes. It will be a cross breed.​

    Thats what i thought .. Cross breed ..


    No those chickens are not mine .. I wish
    - One day i will get birds that look like that .. Just need to find out how to make them [​IMG]
    I thought SLW and Sussex would produce them .. Thought that would be too obvious

    Quote:No That would make red sexlinks, the pullets would be similar to RIRs and the roos would look similar to Light Sussex but with gold leakage.

    Quote:I'm not familar with the their breeding as they are a cross done in the UK and not so much here in the US, I have seen what they looked like though I think, you at least a hen but are they supposed to be Sexlinks ?

    But I can assure you that RIR roo on Light Sussex is a classic Red Sexlink cross.
