    I have a red sex-link rooster and a few red sex-link hens and I was wanting more of these and was wondering if the breed would breed true,or would I get mutts. Or am I better off ordering them from a hatchery.

    You'll get mutts, since they are already hybrids. Probably be good layers, though. What types of chickens do you want? Just red sexlinks? I'm sure there are BYCers around you who are hatching and will have extra chicks to sell. You're a bit less than two hours from me, actually, but there are others closer to you.

    Quote:Nope, you won't get more sexlinks from them. I will be working with breeding some sexling crosses soon if you would be interested in eggs from them.
