    So, I thought I had a Speckled Sussex, since that's what the person I bought it from told me it was. Now...I'm thinking maybe not? Doesn't look like any of the SS I've seen pictures of.

    Any ideas?

    Yes, that looks like a red sex-link. Sorry you didn't get a speckled Sussex. [​IMG]

    I might have to get a different breed altogether. The family filter on my web browser blocks pages with "sex-link" AND "sussex!"

    I may need to find a less risqué breed!

    I finally got some pictures uploaded of my 6 Speckled Sussex. They are now 12 weeks old and I don't know what their sex is. I've had people who have chickens (never had SS) that said they didn't know. I'm still so new here and I don't know how to post the pictures to a thread. I have them in my uploads. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
