    Hi.
    I asked for help with sexing my 4 chicks a little over 2 weeks ago and the verdict was 3 cockerels and one pullet.
    Now I'm not so sure:
    The Light Sussex is for sure a pullet and the Leghorn a cockerel.
    The little Rhode Island Red I think might be a pullet and I'm becoming slightly hopeful for the Maran.

    Could my bad luck change???

    The Leghorn seems to be a cockerel but I'm hopeful for the Maran

    I hope the Rhode Island Red is a pullet.

    My Light Sussex pullet. She looks a lot smaller then the Leghorn specially but about the same size as the Rhode Island Red.
    They're all the same age, hatched on the 19.09.12.


    Thanks!!!

    The sussex looks like a pullet. The other three have way too much comb to be females, even the leghorn. They also have thicker legs.
