    which are Speckled Sussex? These are week old chicks and look nearly identical. Does anyone have any experience with these 2 breeds and can advise how to tell apart as chicks? Thanks....

    OK...I'll have to check that out. I know there are 5 of each...that will help me, too. Looking down on them in the brooder they all look the same. [​IMG]
