    Hello to all you experts! I've recently acquired some chickens of unknown breeding and would hugely appreciate your advice on sex and/or possible breed. I guess the chicken (10 weeks old) above is a Light Sussex X ? Please share your opinions with me if you have the time. There will be more to come.
    Many thanks : )

    The What Breed or Gender is This? forum would be a wonderful place to get advice on the gender/breed of your birds. I can tell you that the bird in the picture looks to me like it's a girl. I'm hardly an expert, or even an amateur, though, for that matter. [​IMG]
