Speckled Sussex Chicks! Post your baby pics and tell what sex

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have 2 new chicks, speckled sussex.  Purchased them as pullets, but I have a tendency to think i've gotten roos by mistake.  (Thought this for 4 months about one of my hens who is laying now...)  I just want to compare some baby photos with people to ease my mind. 
My chicks are about 1 week old.
Thanks, All!

Its hard to tell as chicks,  but at a few weeks old like the in the second and third pic that was posted.  The females will have browner faces and the less white in the breast than the males.

Hatching eggs are no longer avaiable from any breeds until further notice due to predator problems and birds being too old .

Religion is not a guarantee of moral behavior.         
Better to give your kids your values you have than the valuables you can't afford.
THE PROBLEM IS THE SOLUTION.
