    So we're picking up some light sussex chicks next week. By then they should be between 4-7 days old. Are there any good indicators of gender? I know its hard but anything that would make a female seem more likely would be great.

    Smallest, palest comb you can find, and thin legs. Don't be fooled by "friendly" chicks, those are often roosters and not "friendly" but actually aggressive.
