Hyline x Australorp

by Emilie

I have aquired 10 ex battery hyline hens and wondered what would eventuate if they were crossed with an Australorp rooster. The eggs would be incubated and I wonder if anyone would know how to sex them via " sex link method". Thanks

Sex linking
by: Dr Meg

Hi Emilie

The only way to reliably sex such chicks would be vent sexing in the first 24 hours of life. Feather sexing wouldn't work because of their mixed breeding. And they would not be colour sex linked either.
