    Trying to figure it all out...would they be a sexlinked color?

    First off a white leghorn hen crossed with a red sex link roo?

    A red sex link roo crossed with a black star hen?

    And A red sex link roo crossed with a red sex link hen?

    If so what color for what sex would the babies be?

    Here are the babies... 5 of them are from white eggs (so the white leghorn) and 2 are from brown eggs either the black star or the redsex link.


    A pic to show the red chick:

    eta: So far out of the 7 chicks 4 of them look like pullets and 2 look like cockerels according to the feather sexing pictures I found, the red colored chick I am unsure of.

    Leghorns throw white most of the time

    and sex-links can't produce sex-linked-colored babies.

    I think most of your chicks will turn out white
