    I have a Black Sex link Rooster .........white Leghorn black sex link and red sex link hens. I want to hatch some out is one of these crosses better than the other? I'm looking for egg production here. Any help is appreciated.

    Breeding any hybrid won't get you anything like the parent bird but since most of the genetics in those birds are for egg production, I don't see why offspring shouldn't lay well.

    For white egg production I like to stick with Leghorn, Minorca, Ancona and Jaers so I know what I'm working with.
