    Is it possible? If you breed a rir rooster with a barred rock you get a sex link right? well what if I used a blue barred rock? would I have blue sex links? I'm not real good with this genetics stuff so try to go easy on me.

    The females will be blue or black and the males will be barred or blue barred. It will be more difficult to pick out the white spot on the heads of the blue males.
