I know it's early. This was given to me as a pullet. Wanting to know what you think. [/IMG][/IMG]
It is a bit too young to tell. Roosters will feather out with darker feathers on the neck and back than pullets, but it's too soon to tell. 8-12 weeks is usually when you can tell.
It is still too early to tell. Wait 2-4 more weeks. by then it should be obvious. Roosters sprout sickle-shaped feathers on the back of their tails. They also start to (pathetically at first) make an attempt to crow. I wish I could give you an exact answer, but I can't tell yet. Sorry
Your speckled Sussex looks pretty similar to mine and I was told she was a pullet.. I just posted the pictures today.. Maybe that's a good sign
Mine made identification easy, even at about the same age as yours.....he was rounder, darker, and look at that comb! Cockerel on the left, pullet on the right.
And at 9 months old....again, he's on the left, she's on the right. Um, he's kinda blurry because that pesky fly was just begging to be snapped up!
Too young to be sure.If "it" is a cockerel, though, that will become more obvious in the next few weeks.
Thanks for the responses so far. Figured I'd update until we know for sure so others can follow along if they have SS.
6 weeks old. I love this chicken. She's amazingly sweet. Climbs right up on me and sets down for a snuggle and nap. I hope she's a pullet!
She looks like a pullet to me.
