    will post photo, but i think my 'sue' (speckled sussex) is a rooster. ordered a pullet.
    she/he is a may 23 hatch...so 3 months now. all my other girls have short combs and waddles; however, my sussex has big red combs and waddles.
    and is a bit bigger.

    i did read that some sussex get theirs early, but they are HUGE!

    If his tail feathers are drastically shorter than the others, he's probably a boy.
