    I was looking for a way to tell the difference in Light Sussex chicks and Delaware chicks. I found this picture of Light Sussex, and they look exactly like my Delaware chicks. How would I be able to tell the difference?

    Is it just the lighting or are the Delewares a LOT more yellow?

    It's the lighting. My Del's look like those too depending on the light.

    Kathy...guess you just gotta let them grow out a bit and check for barring on the Dellie's. [​IMG]
