    If I crossed a Buff Ameraucana rooster with a Cuckoo Marans hen, would the offspring be sex-linked? If so, any estimate to differences in appearance? It would be interesting to produce a sex-linked olive egger. Thank you for reading!

    That would be a non-barred, non-white rooster over a barred hen, so yes, that is a sex-linked cross :) Male chicks should hatch with a white spot on their heads and will be barred, and females will hatch without a spot and will be solid.
