Hi everyone

hoping for some tips on sexing day old -4 week old speckled Sussex chicks please.
May be a bit too early to tell, good advice from above poster. Some boys may have comb development. If you are still unsure when they are about 6 weeks old, post photos and many here on BYC can help you figure it out.:)

None of those are Speckled Sussex. Could be light & red Sussex maybe, or a mix? I'm not familiar with the colors other than speckled. I can't really see saddle or hackle feathers... 🤨
These were another hatch but was wondering if this are distinguishable between pullet or roo ???

Right now I'd say all pullets since all the feathering looks similar, but I'm a little iffy on the darker red and the white with more mottled coloring on wings, just because the unevenness of markings is something of a flag to me.
