RIR x Leghorn

Does anyone know what a RIR cross Leghorn looks like?
Are they sex-linked?
My guess is red with leakage.

i have bird thats a rir (cock) crossed with a white leghorn hen, it's mainly white with red/brown on the wings and back, has the floppy comb of the leghorn but more like the RIR in overall size
