    If I put a black Ameraucana roo in with these hens:
    Plymouth Barred Rock
    Brown Leghorn
    Golden Cuckoo Marans
    Welsummer
    Delaware
    NH red

    Would any of their chicks be sex-linked?

    The barred rock for sure, possibly the cuckoo marans also.

    And Delaware.

    That's IF the Ameraucana is purebred and not a Silver, Black, Blue, or Splash.

    He came from eggs that were sold as B/B/S Ameraucana.....so I guess no sex-linked chicks. [​IMG]

    If he is solid color he should produce sex links with the BR and Cuckoo Marans. Illia may have been referring only to the Delaware cross IDK

    This is Mabel and Hazel all almost grown up. They are 20 weeks old today. No eggs, but I guess that's normal. Hazel is super skittish, where Mabel will chase me down. I love how colorful they are.

    The Barred Rock cross will work just fine, but the Golden Cuckoo and Delaware not as well, but still will work.


    Beautiful EE girls! [​IMG]
