    I'm really worried that out of 24 eggs, and 9 surviving chooks (first time hatch), that we might only have 3 hens.

    Only one Speckled Sussex made it, and these are out first chickens, so really hard to compare.

    Here's mine at 11 weeks (1st photo) and 12 weeks (the rest). Pullet or Roo?

    I agree, looks like a pullet. Of course you can tell the gender much more accurate at its older age. :)

    I'm thinking pullet for now, but I'm not 100% sure.

    coloring and shape looks feminine, but that's an awful lot of comb for a pullet of that age. I'm leaning pullet, but no where near positive.
