    I purchased a dozen Light Sussex eggs to put under a broody hen and all 12 hatched on New Years Day!

    They're 7 weeks old now and I've separated four which I think are cockerels as they have more prominent combs but I'd like some confirmation before I re-home them.

    Photos are in the following posts.

    Thanks in advance,

    I don't think I'll win any prizes for my chicken photography! LOL

    I forgot to mention that one of the boys and one of the girls have pale markings. I'm assuming these are Coronation Sussex. Is that right?

    Bit hard to tell with some of the pic angles, but the group shot of 5 look like pullets. I only see one Coro and yes it's a cockerel.

    Looks like you got a nice ratio.

    I noticed the one light colored cockerel, and my thought was Coronation.

    Nice hatch!
