    We receive two Light Sussex chicks about 4 weeks ago, and they are likely 1-2 months old as of today.

    The two look very different today, and we're wondering if one might be a rooster.

    Here's the one that we suspect is a rooster - let me know what you think!

    And a comparison shot of the two side-by-side:

    Columbian Rocks, not Light Sussex. One cockerel, one pullet.
