    Void where prohibited.
    If it crows, it's generally a rooster.
    If it doesn't lay eggs, it's generally a rooster.
    But if it looks like it wants to get in a crock pot, it could be anything.

    Pics would help, someone will nail it for ya.

    You will know on the Sussex in about 4-6 weeks. Cochins are slow growers so it may take longer to sex those.
