    I possibly have a red sex linked 5 week old roo also. What will u get if you cross the hen and roo of these hybrids?

    If you breed a sex link to a sex link, you'll get mixed breed birds that are mostly red and white, with the color not being linked to the gender at all. The pullets will be good layers.

    Definitely a Red Sex Link pullet. X2 on Donrae. Since sex links are hybrids to begin with, they won't breed true. If you cross a male and female sex link, you will not be able to tell the gender of the chicks by color. Red Sex Links are egg laying machines. You should get loads of eggs from that lady. :eek:)
