    Looks like a hen. I can't see any rooster feathers. Does your bird have pointy feathers right in front of it's tail. These are called saddle feathers and if it has them then you have a boy.

    At 26 weeks, that Sussex would have skinny/shiny/pointy saddle & hackle feathers and, in general, look roosterish if it were male. Her comb is a little more developed than her sister's but it's still girly.

    The Silkie cross is the only male I see here.
