Its hard to tell without a standing pic. In light sussex, the pullets usually feather up and develop tails quicker than the boys.
Boys combs are redder and usually slightly larger.

YAHOOO! I am happy as I have a couple of babies from "Blind Freddie" my one eyed Sussex roo and they are girls by the look of these pics..
I actually have a Sussex/White Silky cross hen that looks like a Sussex but has a crest and five toes and now I have another little girl the same only she will be a big girl...
Love some of the crosses especially the Sussex they are such placid birds
Cute chicks I must say :^
