These 2 are named thing 1 and thing 2 (started Sussex 1 and Sussex 2 as we don’t like to name them right away. Anywho thing 1 is looking kinda like a cockerel. They are 11 almost 12 weeks old. Thing 1 is darker than thing 2 first 4 pics are thing 1. Last 4 pics thing 2. 9202FF1C-FD48-43AD-8717-EDE24942BC07.jpeg 67CEAB9A-A6D2-42B5-8A27-D21B02640B6D.jpeg CFC2EECC-0B1C-4FBC-9C1A-C537AF737554.jpeg 6B23DA46-B5D0-43D6-A16F-3D834926F828.jpeg AFCD3ED3-1C0F-4105-A1AB-48ED30D77B59.jpeg 45E31CC5-38CB-4713-997D-C61BDACEFD7A.jpeg 8C08E088-FFD9-4AC9-8975-128FE59ECBFB.jpeg 80F5D772-273D-463D-8A8F-3B9803891035.jpeg

If you dig through the saddle feathers you should see sprouting pointed saddle feathers under those which will tell if it's male. I had to do this with my Sumatra.
