    In the third pic the one on the left is a hen, the one on the right may be a roo, a little hard to tell since the combs are pale.

    These pictures only give us a portion of what we need to look for. Based on the head only, they look mostly like pullets. The third photo, right bird has larger features and more color, so that one could be a cockerel. Maybe you could post individual photos of the whole and a close up of the head.

    Are these shots of the same birds?

    In pic 1, the 2 on the right are pullets, the left is roo.

    Pic #2 they both look like roos.

    Pic 3 left pullet, rt. definitely a roo.

    I love speckled sussex - they are so pretty!!

    In the 3rd pic, the one on the right looks like a roo (this is the one I'm most sure about); in the 2nd pic, the one on the left may be a roo; & in the 1st pic, the one in the middle may be a roo (least sure about this one). I read on here that the boys have more white on their heads & some of yours also look like they're getting pointy hackle feathers.
