I keep reading about how darling this breed is, yet with my mixed young flock (Orpington, Wyndotte, and Australorp, and Sussex) this one has been the most assertive/dominating since the get go. I hear that even hens can have larger combs than these other breeds I have. So I have been trying to give this male/female the benefit of the doubt here. It's not the pleasant hen I anticipated. I am afraid I might have a cockerel?? Please check my photos and let me know your thoughts, and what else I might take a photo of to show you more of the bird. I have a wonderful farm to send this bird should it be a roo, but would love to stop worrying about it (live in the city, can't legally have a roo). What's the sex of my little 7 week old Speckled Sussex? There's been no crowing sounds. Here are pictures of the whole chicken, the head, the feet and the wings.
