    We have four Light Sussex chicks that are now roughly 7 weeks old.

    I've already got my guesses that there is at least 2 males and 2 females. However, one 'female' is still a one I think could turn out to be male.

    We've never sexed Light Sussex so I'm just going off their combs and wattles at the moment.

    Anyways, any of your thoughts are appreciated!

    I hope I have the images sorted correctly.

    Possible Male 1:
    (Thinking definite male...)

    Possible Female 1:

    Yes, I hope so anyways!

    The first one has the huge comb so we're thinking he is definitely a male but the others were iffy on at the moment.

    Let's hope there is 3 pullets!

    I hope so!

    I think I may have been over thinking the size of some of the pullets combs :lau
