    Cinnamon queen or red sex link?

    Niether. But, the good news is you will likely get very nice birds and good layers.

    White Plymouth rock over RIR does not produce sex links.

    RIR over white Plymouth rock might produce red sex links ( call them any name you want). This is not a good choice. The RIR male is ok but the white plymouth rock is not a good choice on the female side. A hatchery may use white rocks to produce sex links but they would have to be especially bred for the use.

    Go here and look at the information.
