Let me start by saying that I know the offspring won't be sex linked. I'm asking purely out of curiosity. I've purchase some chicks from a reputable breeder, 5 New Hampshires and 5 Potchefstroom Koekoeks. The Koekoeks are a South African barred breed, very similar to Barred Rocks, only better suited to our climate. The breeder has told me if I breed a New Hampshire roo to a Koekoek hen I will get sex linked chicks. As a future project I may decide to breed them. If I were to keep a roo from the sex links, and breed him to a sex link hen, what would their offspring look like? I'm not worried about them being sex linked, I'm just curious if it can be done and what they will look like. I've done quite a bit of research and I can't find any information. I've also heard that the hybrids lay better. Is there really a significant difference in laying? And will this be carried forward or not?
