    Hi this is our 8- week old speckled Sussex. I'm starting to think she's a rooster. What do you think?

    Too me it looks as if you have a roo on your hands. Everything is way to Red to be a hen.

    Hey they are very good at protecting the girls. As long as you don't have to many of them in one flock. I have 2 one full size and one bannie. They find food for the girls and protect them from anything that could hurt them. And if you raise them by hand they are really sweet to you as well.
