And how can I tell if it's male or female?
Where are you located?
And what color is it supposed to be?
I just was given a couple Sussex eggs and this is what hatched, it's in Melbourne Aust, could it be a barnevelder X Sussex?
Do you have red Sussex there? I know the UK has them.
If it was a Sussex/Barnevelder cross, I'd expect a darker down color. Australia has Light, Speckled, Red, and Buff varieties. The down seems too pale for Red, or Buff. Speckled chicks have the wild-type chipmunk markings. And it's definitely not a Light Sussex.
Red Sussex is definitely a recognized breed and given the white legs of your chick it may well be a Red Sussex but I've never actually seen a Red Sussex chick (just Speckled and Light Sussex chicks), so I can't say for sure.
Thanks guys, I guess time will tell. Can anyone help me sex it?
I'm not sure what it is or what gender but, it is a mighty adorable chick. I think if you would repost new photo in 2-4 weeks, we would be able to tell much more.
It's too young to sex at this point. I would suggest re-posting its pic in about a month. By then its gender should be more obviously.
