    Does anyone know what I would get from a BLR Wyan roo crossed with SL hens? They will be sexlinks right? Anyone got pics of that cross?

    I think I may be trying to talk myself out of breeding my hatchery SLWs, so I can make room for my many rare and project varieties, but if I get a BLR roo from a local lady and end up with something cool, I may becide to breed those.

    What do you all think about me breeding the SLWs, I have some with decent lacing, but they're still young and I'd only keep about 6 hens and a roo. How is the demand for SLWs?

    Thanks

    You will get BLR & GL pullets, and Silver/gold split BLR & Silver/gold split GL cockerels.
    This is a classic sex link

    I think I am still going to do this cross if I can get the roo before she sells all of them, would anyone be interested in eggs from them this spring?
