    So i took back a rooster to a guy that sold me a "hen". And picked up this speckled sussex. Now that i got it home, im second guessing my self and hoping i dont have to go back there cause hes and hr away. It might be hard to tell but her comb is still pale looking and im guessing shes atleast 8+ weeks old

    As a Speckled Sussex, I know the pullets will also have large combs (there's another thread going on about them). At this age, I don't see anything that definitely looks like a cockerel.
