    I think they all look like girls. Seems like they all have finer legs and only a little comb development for 11 wks old. But I'm no expert. This is just my humble opinion.

    My sussex are younger than that and the roos have much bigger combs than that....so I'd say pullets.

    They look like pullets, but watch the one with lots of white on it. Mine that looked like that were all cockerels. Could be a late bloomer.

    My SS rooster has a lot more white on the body compared to the hens as well.

    Looks like pullets right now. But I agree with the white...my roos definitely had more white in them. Oh just seeing those Speckled Sussex makes me remember trying to breed those stupid crooked toes out of them.....grrrrr [​IMG]
