    Read the info in this thread https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=261208

    For black sexlinks, you can breed him with any barred hen. And for Red sexlinks you can breed him with any silver gened hen on the right side of the chart.

    Also look at this thread https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=375015. To see the red sexlinks I bred using hatchery single combed RIWhites. ( note the RIWhites carry dominant white unlike most of the breeds in the chart, so the pullets I got from the RIW hens are red and white and the ones you will get from other breeds of silver hens will be red with black tails intead of white)
