    I am really interested in genetics and i really would like to learn about some of your chicken projects. Whether it is crossing colors or breeds please tell me what you are doing. I am thinking about starting my own project, but i need to think of something to do first. Include the reason why you made this project and how you made it ( if it isnt a secret)

    I am also interested in learning about sex-linked genes. If you created sex linked chicks by mixing certain breeds i would love to learn about it and see pictures.
    Please post pictures if you can as i am a visual learner.

    Thank you

    Thank you for that. I have seen the sex link page before but i couldnt remember how to get to it. It helped me a lot.
    The only thing about the sex link page is it doesnt have pictures of the sex linked chicks. There are a couple pictures. I was really wanting to see different crosses and what the chicks looked like so i could think about what type of sex link crosses would work best for me. I think i am more interested in breeds that lay pretty good crossed together to produce sex linked chicks.
    Can anyone send me to a link that shows pictures of each cross or does it exist? If not i would still like to see some of the projects and sex linked crosses everyone has.
