Rhode Island Red male and White Plymouth Rock females...?
Some type of red sex link. Not sure which one, there's a lot of them!
It may not make a Sexlink if the White Rock hens don't have the silver genes, and some white rocks don't, but if it did I believe it would make hens that look like RIRs and whiteish roos. Look at the sticky on Sexlinks at the top of the Breeds, Genetics, and Showing page.
Quote:This cross is a very popular cross that production breeders use to get a Gold sex-link hybrid egg layers.
They go by a number of different names but are basicly all the same type: Golden sex-links, Golden Comets, Red Stars, ISA Browns, Golden Buffs, ect.... some also call them red sex-links which they could be classed as but they are acctually different in type though.
Anyway check out tadkersons sticky thread on sex-links at thetop of the Breeds,Genetics and Showing sec. here on the BYC.
