    This is a follow up post of some post I made a few weeks ago, I think it's a lot more obvious now that I have 2 roos and 1 hen. Thoughts anybody?

    I think this one's a roo. It looks like a Speckled Sussex, but I'm not quite sure. I've Googled some images for day old speckled sussex's and they looked completely different to mine. I think when this one was a chick it looked pretty much like the Light Sussex but with a small light orange patch near its butt.

    It's just that the RIR's tail is really long and pointy don't you think? Or is that typical of 2 month RIRs? :S

    i think the speckled sussex looks like a roo and the delaware is a girl. The RIR is hard to tell but I'd go with girl

    I have no idea, when I ordered I asked for a sussex, but I didn't specify whether it was a light or speckled. Just thought it's funny how it looked a lot like a light sussex but actually turned out to be speckled!

    If you still cannot figure out if it is a rooster you can always look at the wings and see if they are even. If they are even then it is a rooster, and if uneven it is a pullet.

    Orloffs have beards and muffs (to withstand the cold Russian weather, ya'know! [​IMG] ) and I think yellow legs. This bird looks to be clean faced and the white legs are a trademark of a sussex.

    sorry, forgot. just thought it's body type was a little different than a sussex. that and most young sussexs have less white.
