    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join us here! I'm afraid Sussex are not a breed I have kept but I'm sure if you pop by the what breed gender section members there will be able to help you. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this

    Good luck and I hope she is a pullet :fl
    Enjoy BYC and all the chicken chat :frow

    Agree with Yorkshire coop. The "what breed of gender thread," is where I send people almost constantly on here. They are very good at what they do but, some people expect them to sex newly hatched chicks, which is impossible. 6-8 weeks is a much better time for assessments.
