    I have been hatching out some chicks lately and I don't think my RIR roaster is breeding anything. So far all the chicks look like either full white leghorn or mix (came out of the RIR brown eggs). Don't have any red ones. I'm wondering what they will look like when they become adults since I will be selling most of them. The mixed ones look white but have black spots on them. Here is a picture of some of the chicks.

    Sex linking only works if the male is the red one and the female carries the silver gene.

    Your chicks will probably be mostly white with a few off colors. With those parent breeds probably great layers too! [​IMG]
