    I am not sure if these will post correctly or not as this is the first time I have attempted this. I have four sons here that can't wait much longer to find out if this is for sure a roo!! What do y'all think? It seems there is quite a bit of white on the breast. Is this a mutt? Please be nice [​IMG]

    A little boy for sure! That's the most white I've seen in a Speckled Sussex.

    Age is the question, but overall I say ROO.

    I had a feeling he was a HE and I thought the white was a bit excessive. Any one out there have quality speckled sussex they would be interested in sharing with me? Hatching eggs? Chicks?
