    Ok we have a hugh Barred Rock rooster, we also have 2 RIR hens, well i incubated and had really good results. The question i have is, are these now sex link chicks because some came out beautiful amber coloring and some came out kind of black with what looks like WHITE mohawks!!! HELP

    With a Barred Rock rooster, all chicks will have some degree of barring, too.
