    Too early to tell, but with the fast wing growth I'm going to sat it's a pullet. Your chick looks identical to my Maple at that age and I'm now getting eggs.

    Quote:Way to early to tell, these birds need about 10 weeks before you can be sure well at least mine took that long, but at 1 week it's just a hunch really.

    Speckled Sussex were the hardest birds to sex that I've ever had. So I'd say to early too!!
