I have hatched 5 healthy Sussex chicks. I have google sexing and they say females have flight feathers first Pom short long short. I think all 5 are girls is there another way of sexing them.

It's really hard to tell at this age. You would have better look asking us again when they 8 weeks old.
#2 does look like a female, though. However feather sexing is most accurate on certain breeds that have been bred to show these characteristics.

feather sexing only works on hybrids of a slow feathering breed and a fast feathering breed. It doesn't work on full bred birds. You have to wait until their 6-8 weeks to figure it out. Post them on the 'breed and gender' section.

Ok I’m back 8 to 9 weeks later what do you think the sex is. From hatch I feel the black ones a hen but not sure of lavender to. And white one looks like a rooster with definent pink comb.
