Sexing Sussex

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have five Sussex and it appears the mentors I got them from as chicks are no longer around :( They were born the first of March so, they will be five months old the first of August. I've tried searching but, can't find any information on sexing them! Any help would greatly be appreciated!

Welcome to BYC!

 

Good news! You've come to the right place to sex your birds! BYC is filled with articles and threads on sexing birds. You can also post pics here so we can help you determine the gender.

 

Here are several links worth looking into.

Things to watch for that might indicate a cockerel include: large combs and wattles, pointy sickle, hackle and saddle feathers and a bossy/obnoxious behavior. But overall, sexing birds is a waiting process that can only be fully determined when they mature.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
