    hey so I originally put this post under the wrong forum
    anyways here I go
    I have a sneaking suspicion these two might be males they are roughly 5 weeks old
    Not sure what breed as I got them at an auction although I do think they are light Sussex's [​IMG]

    I think I see feathered feet. I'd say Light Brahma but the comb doesn't look like a pea comb to me so unsure of the breed.

    I've had Orpington, Plymouth Rock and mixed breeds and with all of them the cockerels comb would have pink at 5 weeks of age. I vote pullets.

    yeah they do have feathered feet but they did say it was most likely cross so that would explain the comb so you vote for pullets that's good because I hand raised these since o got them and them two are the friendliest of them so it would be a shame if they do turn out to be roos

    They look like mixes to me, probably with some Light Brahma in them. And as of right now, they look like pullets.
