What is a Rhod Island Red & Rhode Island White cross called?
If a Isa Brown was a simple RIR/RIW cross, wouldn't they be rose combed ?
An ISA Brown is a four way cross.

If the RIR is the male and the RIW is the female and she carries the silver(white) required, the result could be sexed at hatch, aka sexlink.

I put a part Araucana rooster over some of mine and they 'split" fairly evenly into white and red hens in the first cross.
I thought that cross was a golden sex-link...or is that the same thing?
Here is how they "split" -
IMHO, they are a cross breed (yes a cross breed because they are different breeds)
