    I have a chick who is a cross between a RIR and a White Leghorn. Is there a certain name for them?

    I also have some eggs in the bator who are a cross between a Silver Laced Wyandotte and the roo is a RIR.

    Are there certain terms for these or are these just mutts?[​IMG]

    Is the male a RIR? Then it is a Red sex link.
    The second cross will be sex links also, but I am not aware if it has a particular name.

    thank you Josie. To be honest with the first one I listed if the roo was the Leghorn or the RIR. I will have to ask dh since he got them from his buddy at work.

    Second generation sexlinks do not breed true.
