Is the late bloomer a roo?

    These three Coronation Sussex are supposed to be from the same hatch, but as you can see, one is feathering much more slowly. Im thinking two hens and a roo.... what do you think?

    The two in the front look like pullets, back appears a rooster. But, the first one could be a late bloomer. I can't quite see all of them. I would wait a few more weeks and wait until someone reddens. I absolutely love coronation sussex. They are gorgeous. Good luck. Do you want a trio? Or all girls. A trio would be a nice start at breeding.

    With the new view, yes, I see a trio. But you can't be 100% for a few more weeks.

    They all look like pullets to me.
