    Sexing my light Sussex PAIR was so much fun I decided to try it again. This was sold to me as Blue Laced Red Wyandotte hatching egg, obviously not. Apparently the grandkids played with the eggs before mailing which could explain why I only got this one and one actual BLRW who died. Anyway, it is now supposed to be a Buff Orpington so I am thinking (and hoping [​IMG]) that it's a pullet.

    Here she is:

    She's a pullet - you didn't mention age, but I'm guessing about 6 weeks or so?

    Here's a 7-8 week buff orpington roo (and a BA roo) - large combs & wattles that were already prominent by 6 weeks:
