Silkie crosses

If a white bantam silkie cock is crossed with a light sussex bantam or pekin, what will the chicks turn out like and can they be sexed at a day old

To get auto sexing,
it must be gold over silver.
gold silkie or a white you are sure of parentage,
to a light sussex hen (dont know about pekins)
will give you gold/brown pullets, an yellow /white cockrels.
