Yea, this waiting about the chicken's sex is hard. We interact with our 6 chickens everyday. They all come to me when I let them out of the coop after work. They know I usually have some kind of treat. The chick, Spot, is my son's chick. My friends have meat chickens and we may have to cull a few roosters, but not Spot. I am positive we have at least 2 hens, maybe 1 more if Big Girl is a hen. Turq is a Spotted sussex, and another of my spotted sussex, Dusk, has the larger comb/wattles, but is not nearly as big as Turq, soooooo, maybe Dusk is hen.

Don't know if this helps I'm not with the little guys right now so I had my brother take a picture.
