    I have a broody hen that just hatched 5 chicks out of random eggs from my entire flock. I can tell who the mother was on all of them but one, a chipmunk striped one. My rooster is a Partridge Rock. I think the mother for this one might be my barred rock. Will Partridge Rock over Barred Rock make a sex-linkable chick?

    I think you will have to wait till they start feathering out. Mine are 2 1/2 weeks and I can now till who the momma is. Its fun guessing though. I have EE's so most are different in their own ways, the roo is a Marans, So they start black then change. Have fun. [​IMG]
