    IMG_0619.JPG My two Coronation Sussex chicks are now 9 weeks old. Internet searches show that hens have red combs and wattles, so I don't know what to think about these two! Opal started developing faster than Pearl, but Pearl seems to be catching up! Is there someone with breed experience that can help?

    I have a flock of Coronation Sussex. I would say Roo. I have five boys, two of which I need to observe to see which one's to cull. I also have a brooder box full of chicks. Fertility hasn't been an issue. The older of the group appears to be a hen. No long tail feathers or a comb starting to develop.
