BO's are a little harder to sex because they're just big buffs, all the same color.


Though, roosters have sickle feathers (shiny curved feathers on the tail) and pointy hackles ( feathers at the base of the neck) and hens have the opposite.

I think speckled Sussex chickens are a little easier to sex because the roosters usually have a darker brown plumage, I noticed.
