    Never grant me with common sense!
  3. Hey, Photobucket is great, but I like to upload to BYC and have it all in one place. There are many uses that photobucket is darn near a necessity, but I find it hard to use.

    Yeah I've got to have a learning lesson on the same myself to me this contraption is just a glorifide typewriter. I know I'm a dinosaur, lol.

    Anyway on your roo, I think that a White Sussex should be all white with no black in the tail. Maybe somebody that knows for sure will jump in and tell us, I don't think they are really popular here in the states.

    I don't think it's a White Sussex, as he's got black on him. Maybe a poor Light (or one that hasn't completely feathered) or Coronation Sussex. I'm pretty sure that's a rooster. It *might* be a Delaware male.

    It is too light bodied to be a Sussex because they are supposed to be like tanks!

    Looks like a Leghorn cross or a bad Sussex cross. A cross of some sort.

    Yep a roo!
