    Here's another of the SLW. He is one of my most obvious boys - fighting etc. the light Sussex is also very feisty.

    Haha that's okay :) I have 6 others which are pullets which I haven't photographed! I just wanted to be sure before I start the cull because it's getting too cramped in the coop for 15!

    And you're pretty confident with the light Sussex? He's my only iffy one

    You have a handful of boys there! The only possible pullet I'm seeing is the last barred rock.

    I agree with Mountain Peeps, that's the only pullet I can see.
