    Greetings from Kansas, Liz, and [​IMG]! Great to have you aboard! Love Speckled Sussex - they are always so friendly! You might post a close up pic of the one you are unsure about in this link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this
    There are some pretty savvy breed and gender identifiers on that forum.
    And you can say hello to other NJ poultry folks on the NJ thread in this link: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you
    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!!

    G’Day from down under Liz [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received links to some good starting points from redsoxs, I will just wish you and your flock all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Please post any mystery bird photos at "what breed or gender is this." Your rooster is beautiful.
