    I think 8 weeks of age would be better for photos

    Ok Here is an update on my specked sussex chicks. They are 7 weeks old and still can't decide if they are Hens or Roos. Would really appreciate you guys input. Thanks

    Chick #1 Same as chick #1 in original post

    Chick #2 has less white on the chest and the tail is not as long as chick #1. Though they feathered out the same.
