    a sexlink is also called many other things, for example, golden or black comet, production red , etc. its 'breed' of chicken that can be sexed at birth by their color. puff, the sexlink that we are talking about is a red sexlink, i cant remember how they are mixed so that sexlinking works, but its like mixing a Rhode island red with a white bird(leghorn perhamps?)
    hope that helps
