I have those 4 chickens,
2x ameraucana. One rooster and one hens.
1x plymouth rock rooster
But my concern is my last one. The seller was saying that she was a light sussex. Clearly ain't one from he look and color. I am also not sure that she is an hens or a rooster.
If you guys and girls could give me a bit of your knowledge on her breed and sex. It would be perfect. I believe that she might be a female and a white leghorn. But im changing my mind everyday !

The one you are concerned about is a cockerel and not a leghorn. Looks to be a mix.

Its nine weeks and it has a large comb AND waddle and not just that, but they are also bright red. Are you sure one of your "ameraucanas" is a cockerel?
By their saddle feathers. It seems like it. But seems its an ameraucana. Takes longer for them to fully mature.
By going with leghorn standards. Both cockerel and pullet have large red comb and for the wattle i would need to compare but it is smaller then the plymouth.

The leghorn is a cockerel and the "ameraucana" #1 is a most likely a pullet. Male saddle feathers dont come in this early usually it comes in at 12 weeks old. And no female leghorn mix is going to get bright red and huge comb and waddles at 9 weeks.

The first one is NOT a leghorn its a barnyard mix chicken and it is a rooster :). Also the amercana is a HEN not a rooster also both plymouth rocks are also boys.
