    I actually returned another one of these birds at 8 weeks because I thought it was a cockerel, the guy said they were all single comb white sussex hens and he got them from McMurray, they all looked like lil roosters to me, but I htough I was just being paranoid, so I kept one anyway, but now I'm thinking I was right all along.

    Have to agree.... Red Sex link roo. Sussex should have white/pink legs.

    I'm thinking you need to do business with a new store. They were trying to spin a tall tale.
