    I ordered chicks from my pet chicken sexed as females, but there are a few I'm questioning. Could just be paranoia as I always end up with roosters. Any opinions appreciated and I'll try to follow up when we hear crowing or receive eggs.

    Thanks in advance.

    All pullets, the only possibly questionable one is the Speckled Sussex.

    Thank you! I'm hoping the sussex is a she as it belongs to my youngest daughter!

    I believe that sussex is a roo. I am a little suspect of the Golden Laced Wyandotte too. That comb looks awfully red and prominant to be so young.
