I’ve thought this is a pullet since day one, can y’all confirm just to be sure I have no experience with this breed. I have heard they tend to get wattles earlier than most. Hers are just showing up this week.

I believe that's a cockerel because of the coloring. Males have the white tip and black bar at the end of each feather.
Oh no, I knew for sure this one was a pullet. She’s small framed and has small legs and feathered right along with my other pullet for the first weeks. Everything has seemed pullet to me. :idunno

This is what I found when I searched as I was also trying to sex my SS chicks.
"Their tails are brown and black with white on the ends, while their beaks are brownish-pink. Male Speckled Sussex chickens have a dark mahogany head, neck, and saddle with the tip of almost every feather adorned with white and a black bar that lies between the white tip and the remainder of the feather."

Thank you for the helpful information. I already have one confirmed cockerel out of 3 “pullets” this year, so I’ll wait this one out fingers crossed it turns out to be a pullet.
