    So I have 4 red sex link hens, and a beautiful Speckled Sussex rooster. I put a few eggs in the incubator 10 days ago, kind of a practice run . So far 6 look to be healthy. I can't even imagine what they may look like. Any ideas?

    Don't name your chickens before they hatch! Waaay too sad if something happens.

    Well, if you want to cause quite a bit of commentary, you could call them sex-sex's. [​IMG] You aren't likely to see any speckling as mottle is a recessive gene.
