    How can you tell if you have Speckled Sussex chicks apart from other chicks that look so similar like for example Easter Egger chicks and others that really look alike?

    My little SS had light pink legs as a chick and chipmunk markings with a rather yellow shade to her chest feathers. The EEs all had greenish legs and cheek puffs and were not easily mistaken for anything else.
