    Hello,

    I have what I think is an SS cockerel but he is 20 weeks old and hasn't let out a single crow. The other one is a White Cochin and I am wondering the same thing.[​IMG]

    At 20 weeks, you'll *know* if he's a roo, regardless of crow. Mine was a late crower.

    That's Ringo, around 20 weeks or so.

    I have a SS hen as well.

    This is Reba on the same day as Ringo. Cell shot vs DSLR, but should be enough to demonstrate the difference.

    Yep, if 20 weeks, they look like they'll be laying soon. Enjoy!

    Looks pullet, but the pic is kinda dark to tell.

    If you only have one speckled sussex, it's a pullet, not a cockerel. You saw my pic of my rooster, yes?
