    Hi all-
    I just hatched some chicks that are white leghorn roo x RIR hen.
    At 6 days old they are yellow, and some have black spots.
    I was wondering:
    1. Is there any way to sex them by observing growth patterns? I hear they don't have sex-linked coloration.
    2. Does anyone have this cross? How are they, and do you have any pictures? [​IMG]
