    I have 2 new chicks, speckled sussex. Purchased them as pullets, but I have a tendency to think i've gotten roos by mistake. (Thought this for 4 months about one of my hens who is laying now...) I just want to compare some baby photos with people to ease my mind.
    My chicks are about 1 week old.
    Thanks, All!

    Its hard to tell as chicks, but at a few weeks old like the in the second and third pic that was posted. The females will have browner faces and the less white in the breast than the males.
