Here are my 10 week old light sussex bantams. I would be interested to hear other light sussex breeders view on their sex. These are my first babies and the first time i have had light sussex so I am non the wiser on their sex. I am suprised how quick bantams featherup and grow. Cheers Linda :thanks:

Are these 4 different birds?
I feel, if so, only one pullet, the photo number 2 ( this bird is bit low on black feathering, but might develop more as it gets older )
Both in photo 3 I feel are males .
Photo 1 is the difficult one BUT more inclined to say male from the comb and wattles and hackle . However the head is more to a pullet .

It is a good idea to state clearly the number of birds on which you are seeking advice. :wink:

Thanks Martin. How are you? Long time not chat :biggrin: Thanks Cackles. I will in future add more info. These photos are of 4 individual chooks. It is challenger taking photos at times as the do not stand still :wink: During this photo shoot one jumped on my head, gave me fright i fell back onto some poo :o With my lovely Barnies I can pick them so much better. Over here in the west it has been a mixture of humidity and hot, windy days and the girls are hardly laying. It is at these times I miss my original home Victoria. 4 season in one i dont mind but the yukky heat and wind in summer not nice. Martin I will be intouch for a Barnie chat. Thanks for your opinions fellas. Cheers and have a good day. :thanks: Linda
