    I have some Black sex links. Does anybody know what kind of chickens I would get if I hatched them using a BSL rooster on the hens.

    yep, anything that comes out of a sex link is a mutt. They will be my eating egg layers.

    You might get some with more red than others. You might get some with barring (especially the roos) But they should still be egg laying machines. I don't ever want to give up my black sex link although she has become number one hen in the pecking order once I rehomed my HUGE RSL that was trying to crow!
