    i have a speckled sussex that is 4 1/2 weeks old. wondering about gender. i am thinking girl but after reading other threads i am not as sure. it has a lot of white on the chest but a longer tail and almost no comb development. it is still very yellow and i see no wattles yet. any guesses are appreciated. thanks

    I would say pullet too. At that age a roos comb would already be more red.

    Looks like a pullet right now, I've attached a photo of one of mine @7 weeks even with the color in her comb she grew up to be a big beautiful pullet! This is Gidget!
