Speckled Sussex gender?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

 

We purchased those two in late august, they were hatched on 8/12, both were supposed to be female Speckled Sussex... seems like we have one EE hen and the SS looks like a roo to me, her comb is small and not red, and she's super sweet, jumps on my lap and loves to cuddle and stuff, but her tail and back green feathers... 

More pics of Vanilla (him or her?):

Looks like a rooster to me because of the tail feathers.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Dang, figured. Sigh. 

We got 3 female chicks that day, one ended up being the wrong breed and one is a rooster.

Looks like a cockerel to me, too.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
