Hi everyone. Wondering if someone can sex my buff Sussex chicks - 7 weeks old. Thinking there is 2 pullets 1 cockerel and 1 I'm not sure! First 2 pics are of the potential cockerel, next 2 the one I'm not sure of, next 2 are pullet 1 and next 2 pullet 2. Not sure if it helps indicate gender but I also weighed them - cockerel 800g, mystery 700g, pullet 1 700g and pullet 2 650g. Thanks!

Oh I'm sorry I misread! It's hard to tell them apart, I thought there were only 3!
Then I have a hunch it's 2 and 2
Haha no problem next time I think I'll edit the pictures to have numbers on! Yea that's what I'm leaning towards- was hoping for 3 pullets -oh well hopefully the next few weeks it will be a bit more obvious! Thanks

Are these the start of the dreaded saddle feathers of a rooster on this buff sussex?

They don't get saddle feathers that young but that buff is a cockerel. It's comb is too developed and red for a 9 week pullet.
