    First time raising chicks and now just trying to suss out the Roos some have been easy big combs, fighting and crowing as they are now 8 weeks but some have me stumped. These Sussex- pretty sure middle is a Roo going by comb, size and tail feathers but what about the two either side? Any ideas?[​IMG]
    [​IMG]Also what is the one on the left - I think Roo and maybe an mix?[​IMG]This one is def a Roo as he was busy crowing & fighting this morning a Silkie? He is very funky looking!

    I would lean towards all the Light Sussex being males. They all have rather large combs for their age.

    Thank you! Yeah I had a feeling that all three Sussex might be boys but was hoping I was wrong! Appreciate the help Cheers

    I agree with Wyandottes7's guesses.
