It just means that they are a cross of two chickens where the offspring is able to be sexed at birth by color.

ex: rir rooster with a barred rock hen= sexlinks

the males will have a white spot on top their heads when hatched and will be barred when they are adults
the females will be solid black when hatched and will have some red in the chest when they are adults
