Auto sexing with Rhode Island Red Hens?

by Paul
(Natural Dam, AR USA)

I have 10 purebred RIR Hens. There are lots of autosexing with RIR roosters.


So my question is what roosters can I use with these RIR hens so I can autosex at hatching?

And what breed would is make?

And what would be the difference in the male/female chicks at hatching?

Can anyone send me a list of roosters to use and the effects of the offspring, or maybe 1 or two different types I can use? No Bantam's, I want the mid to large size hens. Would prefer Brown Egg Layers.

Thank You in advance,

Paul

You may be thinking of what's called sex-link.

It seems like you breed RIR roo with white rock hen. Females will be red with a few white spots.
