Yet another impatient chicken mom here. What do you all think? Hen or Roo? Purchased as a pullet. The comb is actually rather pale pink unless the sunlight hits just right. She is broad across the back; bottom of the totem pole with 5 other chickens. Definately was less social as a little one, and constantly on the move. Very difficult to hang on to when finally picking her up. Thanks ahead for your opinions!View attachment 1566622 View attachment 1566623 View attachment 1566625 View attachment 1566626 View attachment 1566627 View attachment 1566628 View attachment 1566629 View attachment 1566630
Thick legs, noticeable wattles, curving back feathers, and quite the messy tail-shape. And his chest is noticeably lighter than his back, which appears to be a sign of a male, according to a short Google image search. (The white markings seem to be more evenly dispersed on females.) I've never raised Sussex, but that bird definitely looks like a cockerel to me.
