    If you cross a welsumer rooster on a delaware hen or a white leghorn hen will you get sexlink chicks? I was wondering if I crossed a roo on a leg horn hen if I would get a sex link chick that would lay lots of brown eggs? I figured with the Welsumers dark egg you would still get a moderately brown egg and lots of them with the leg horn hen? What do you think?

    A silver laced wyandotte hen as well as a white rock, delaware, or rhode island white, crossed with a rhode island red or new hampshire rooster will produce the sex link.
