Just loaded the bator up with 32 mixes and 9 red sex links.
I set 7 light brahma orp mixes. Her ee didn't cooperate in laying any the past 5 days, so just these!
Jan 21st I set 40 eggs. Candles then on day 4 due to faulty humidity gauge and I think all but 3-5 look great. Very clean signs.
Awesome. Buff Orpington rooster crossed with Light Brahma hens will produce sexlinked chicks.
I'm looking forward to more of these!!
I set mine last night, so we're probably going to be a day late but... Got 4 barnyard mixes and 15 CCL crossed with Isabelle leghorns. Pretty excited to see what they look like!
The Isabelle coloring uses the self-blue/Lavender recessive dilute. You will not get any Isabelle colored chicks in first generation crossings.
Aww boooo. No huge loss, I went into this for the egg color rather than feather color. Still, what color do you think they'll be then? What Genetics do the CCLs use?
I think (could be wrong) that Isabelle Leghorns are a silver-based partridge coloring but with the self-blue/lavender gene diluting the black patterning. I think that Cream Legbars are gold partridge coloring with the cream gene, which is a recessive diluting gene for gold, and the barring gene. The Leghorns will breed like they don't have the dilute when crossed, so basically like a Silver Leghorn. The Legbars will breed more like a 'crele' color, when crossed.
If the Legbar is the rooster, and the Isabelles are the hens, you might get non-typical red sexlinks. All the chicks will be barred. Pullets will be golden in coloring. Males will be black and white, with some red leakage as they mature.
If the rooster is Isabelle, and the hens are Cream Legbar, you will get non-typical black sexlinks. All the boys will have head spots indicating barring, and the hens won't get the barring gene at all.
The Legbar is the rooster, so if I'm understanding you correctly the female chicks should be golden and the male chicks black and white?
