    At this age with feathering coming in, sometimes you can tell by the feather shape on the ends. At the start of the saddle,(the lower neck area that bends into the saddle), and around the saddle area, look at the shape of the feathers. Hens usually have rounded tips. Little roos have sharp pretty tips.

    These feathers don't come in until at least week 10, but usually around week 12.

    All feathers will be rounded at 6 weeks.

    #1 looks like a pullet. The other 3 look like cockerels (#2 being a definite boy).

    I'm also thinking all boys except the first. Good profile shots would help, as will a few more weeks.

    Where did you get your buff sussex chicks? I would like to get some chicks in the spring and have not been able to locate a source. I'm from Ohio but come to State College to sporting events.
