    Sorry for my bad english.

    I have 2 light Sussex chickens who are now 5 weeks old and i really want to know their gender. I've been on many sites and i've read many posts about light sussex gender but i still don't get it. I really want my chickens to be hens, bescuse of the eggs of coruse :)
    As i said i got 2 of them and they are 5 weeks old, it might be to early to tell the gender but i'll give it a try.[​IMG]

    Is there anyway that i can see it on the behaviour?
    Beacuse they always follow eachother and one of them is more dominant.

    I am still learning all things chicken too. But i think you have 2 roos if they are in fact only 5wks old. My light sussex above is about 11wks old & still showing no red in her comb.

    We just had to rehome a roo so i know it sucks a bit [​IMG]
