Hi! I have 6 chicks which hatched 26th june, so exactly a month ago today. Four silver sussex and two light sussex. I had read they can be quite difficult to sex untill quite old and that does seem to be the case! Thought I'd see whether people think the same or opposites to me, just for fun mainly! A week or so ago it seemed really clear cut as a couple had their comb and wattles turn red while the rest stayed light, but now their behaviour and development seems a bit inconclusive! (mainly as one of the ones i thought was definitely female has hopped up and practiced mating with its 'mother' a couple of times!) Is that normal so young by the way?! Not sure if its a dominance thing or a clear cut way of knowing its a roo! Ok, here we go.. LS1 LS2 SS1 SS2 SS3 SS4 Anyone thats raised them have a theory on them? I've been tracking them quite closely so now I have to wait and see what they turn out to be before I can see if my theories work or are coincidence!
