    So heres my light sussex chicks. I;ve guessed the barely feathered one is a roo since I got them. But then he has no comb and the other one is just SO big with a bit of a comb. He is very upright though (but maybe he looks more so because he has no feathers). What do others think!?

    And this photo makes him really look like a roo, watching over all my other (hopefully) pullets!

    Hey there, I have 7 week Sussex light and am wondering like crazy what they are.... Unfortunately out of the 3 I think 2 are Roos :/ so I am going to test my abilities and guess that your chick in question is a hen! Please let me know if I am wrong or right. :) Hopefully wrong- then I might not actually have 2 Roos!

    I only see one light sussex, the other one has no black in tail , neck or wings to be light sussex.. I would say the one with black markings looks like a female...
