    Anyone with Sussex experience, what do you think? Girl or Boy? 10 weeks. I looked for incoming saddle/hackles. I saw some feathers coming in, but they were not pointy at all. flat ends. Comb is pink at base with yellow tips. Not red at all.

    I'm seeing pullets, too, though I haven't raised that particular breed. [​IMG]

    I had a few of both sexes, they were kinda hard, the hackle feathers was the best clue as I recall. Yours look like pullets to me.
