    Hi there, new to the site, have recently acquired these 2 three month old light sussex chicks, which I am led to believe are both pullets. Not so sure about No. 2 though. Any thoughts?

    The first one definitely a pullet, the 2nd one may be a roo, because of the larger and redder combs and waddles.

    I'm beginning to think so too! Although the first chick is quite noticeable larger and taller then the second chick.

    Usually, the roos develop slower, actually. Weird, right?
