    My birds are 9 or 10 weeks old except the speckled Sussex who is 7 or 8 weeks. Can you help me with genders please? I think the 3 older ones are girls but I'm not sure about the Sussex because of the bigger comb. Help please! Thanks

    The BR RIR and EE look like pullets to me. I never had any Sussex so I hold a ?. Lets see what others think. I can see why you are not sure , That comb does look a little larger, but it is not always an easily determining factor in all varieties and breeds.
    You have a nice variety [​IMG]

    The first bird is male, everyone else looks female.

    Thank you. I'm sad because I can't keep him :( I'm going to hold out a little longer because the comb is still yellow. I'm not sure why their combs showed up pink in the pictures, none of them are even a little bit pink.
