    I figured it was a mutt. Looks like a water chicken only uglier.

    How old are the Sussex? They do both look like males to me. First bird is still a mixed breed cockerel.

    All three are roos.

    I have a Speckled Sussex and it took about 7-8 months for her comb and wattles to come in.

    They are a couple of months old. I'll call the breeder and see what she has to say.

    If those SS are only a couple of months old, they are definitely roos
