Four week old, Could this be a coronation sussex? She was a bonus chick from a breeder.

    Could be, but the black on the wings looks black black, so more likely a Light Sussex than a Coronation.

    She is four weeks old should she have black feathers on the back of her neck by now?

    The lavender feathers on my coronations came in at about 6 or 8 weeks of age. She looks alot like them at that age.

    I have Coronations but this is my first hatch of them. They are 4 weeks but still all white....how can you tell a Rooster in these guys, ...and are male/ faster at development.
