She's huge and three times the weight of my RIR and Wheaten which are apparently the same age.....? Thanks so much for your commentsWow, she is chunky! I’d say pullet as I’d expect a LS cockerel to be far redder and you should start to see male feathering at this age. This amount of redness at 14 weeks on a Sussex seems pretty normal for a pullet.
Somehow she's 1.6KG and the RIR/Wheaten are both 700g. Can't figure it out as apparently they are same age! Thanks so muchYep - I'm still thinking pullet.
Hackles seem rounded, no sign of any cockerel feathering, and Sussex can lay around 16 weeks anyway.
It did cross my mind her growth could be stunted due to the bullying, but I'm still seeing a pullet, not a cockerel.
I have the same thing but i don't really see any other signs of her being a cockerel. I have two light brahma cockerels of 19 weeks so they look kind of similar with the coloring. The tail feathers look different from a cockerels too, and no pointed saddle feathersKnowing me I'll panic that she's a cockerel! I'm not 100% sure how old she is
