Welsummer Roo cross Light Sussex hen

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi I know this has been discussed before but I have not the time to go through old posts  I have a Welsummer Roo cross Light Sussex hen chicks hatching at the moment so far these look like a Welsummer or a plain browny gold colour  Does that mean they are all girls so far? Also can this breed be feather sexed?  Thank you very much

The breed cannot be feather-sexed, but they can be auto-sexed. Welsummer x Light Sussex should produce sex-linked chicks, so I'd say that it's safe to say you have all females.
