    The pics attached here are a few weeks old (sorry [​IMG] ) but essentially the australorp has literally doubled in size and height and has a tail now, but the sussex has only grown some white feathers...
    I don't know what the gender is, or how fast these chickens grow but I was counting on them not needing any heat by 4 weeks (that is what my supplier told me [​IMG] ) Can anyone guess the gender?

    Thankyou [​IMG]

    PS I can post more pics of them now if needed [​IMG]

    To young in the pics to tell.

    They need heat at 95 week 1

    90 week 2

    85 week 3

    an so on till you are at ambient temp then ditch the heat.

    Too young to tell. One of my girls got her comb really early on.
