I have 5 Light Sussex chicks that I am trying to sex. Will you please help me? The pictures aren't great, it was a windy day today so the feathers ruffled in the wind, and I had to snap the pictures quickly before the chicks flew off the roof of the coop.

One of them is obviously a cockerel. However, he is actually the smallest in stature of my chicks:





I think that the other 4 are pullets, but I am not sure. I can't yet tell by the neck feathers, so I am going on the development of the comb and wattles. Here they are:

#1


#2


#3


#4

I wanted to mention that some of the gray coloring you see on some of the chick's backs is from when I had to spray Blu-Kote on some of them when they were 2 weeks old. They were pecking bloody spots on one another and the Blu-Kote stopped it- however that stuff sure takes forever to wear off!
