    I have some eggs in the bator due around July 19th...

    Dad is a BO, and the moms are BO, PR and mixed BO/PR.

    I do not know which eggs are from which hen, so my question is:

    Will some of the chicks be sex-linked if they have a PR or BO/PR mom?

    If yes, how do I spot the girls from the boys?

    Thank you [​IMG]

    NO You have to have a Gold roo on Silver hens, your hens are Gold as well and will not produce sexlinks.
