    i have 3 Light Sussex that are now just over 4 months old...
    2 of them are identical and the 3rd which is slightly smaller looks different especially the tail.
    i would like to get some input from all you experts out there if these are pullets or cockerals.


    all 3 hanging out, the one standing up is the main suspect

    The third is certainly a cockerel, the other two are either also cockerels or pullets with mean lookin' faces.

    Wow! I'd say that last picture is a rooster for sure. My 6 1/2 month old light sussex, Gargantua, is just now getting a comb bigger than the little "fingers" that were sticking up on the top of her head! Those are impressive combs all your chickens there are sporting at such a young age.
