    Please, please, please, I really need someone that knows what they are doing to help me sex my Light Sussex chooks? I have three 20 week olds and I am pretty sure two have turned into boys :-(
    The more I research it though, the more unsure I am. The first pic is the one I am sure is a rooster, he stands tall, is a bit cranky and "mounts" the others. The second pic is the one I'm really unsure about and the next two just show them together for a comparison. Thank you in advance

    You have two cockerels (the first two birds) and one hen. I can tell because the males have pointy hackle feathers and a larger comb than the pullet.

    I agree that it looks like two cockerels and a pullet. Welcome to BYC.
