The lavendar sussex chicks are 11 weeks old And to me I feel like they look like roosters but the breeder supposedly sexed them as hens for me.

Also in a previous post a few sais my austrolorp may be a roo and this is him/her now (last picture)

Thanks in advance!

Sussex are cockerels
Australorp is a pullet
One Orpington is a cockerel, another a pullet.

Honestly, Give it a couple of weeks and the guys' saddle feathers will be coming out and it will be obvious, even without a crow, that they're boys. Then you can go to the breeder and say Crow or not, those are boys.

Thanks! She said she will take them back and replace with two more chicks but I'm going to keep one as my roo!
