    I'll have photos in a bit. I have four 6-month-old Sussex Speckled, and four 6-month-old Delawares. They were purchased from a feed mill, there was no guarantee on gender.
    None of them looks definitively like a male. Is it too soon? My husband is convinced that we have all females, I cannot believe that would happen. Should I be able to tell gender by now? Is my husband right? I'll try to get some photos up. Thanks in advance!

    At 6 months you should be able to sex them. I can't wait to see some pictures!
