    I've wondered about this for a long time... I do know that EEs have mixed pedigrees (unlike true Americanas and Araucanas). But would most EE roosters make sex-link chicks with a BR hen? Is their any way to tell by his coloring whether or not it'll work? Would most EE roos make sex-links, or only very few? Thanks!

    There really is no way to know for sure....if that's what you're wanting to make, test hatch a bunch, leg band them to keep track of them, and see how it turns out! [​IMG]
