They hatched March 19th. The mom is a sex link and the father is a buff orpington bantam cross. Would these girls be sex link? If so, what kind of sex link?

Nope, they'd be barnyard mixes. You need to breed two birds with pure, sex-linked traits to make a sex-linked chick. And then it only works in the first generation -- sex-linked chicks can't produce more sex-linked chicks.
