    We have a male Dominique that we breed whith our RIR's. We know its going to be a sexlink but what is going tobe called????? It should be a nice size egg layer like the blackstars.

    Actually, it will NOT be a sexlink. For that to happen, the hen must be the barred one and the rooster the red one.
    All your chicks will have barring.

    You have a barred crossbreed. There is no special name for that...except maybe "mutt".

    LOL Thanks well if the "mutts" grow big and lay eggs we'll be happy. We'll have to show some picks when the one we got gets bigger and the others hatch.
