    The farmer where I bought my four speckled sussex chicks says he is 90% accurate in sexing SS chicks, but 3 of the 4 look like this (significant comb, white chest) at six weeks old. The fourth one looks very different. Any chance this "hen" and the other 2 that look the same, are girls?

    With that much comb I would say cockerel.

    It appears to be a cockerel.
