You're welcome! I guess time will tell with the Welsummers. :) I love those Spitz boys, and I don't even know them! :love

Pretty soon it should be obvious one way or another.

 

Here's a week 10 shot.  Our cockerel's legs and feet are much, much, much bigger than the pullets, considerably more yellow, and then there's the much bigger comb and wattles and all those pretty pointy feathers. 

 

 

 

Compare the legs on the Welsummer cockerel to the pullets on the left pictured below.  The far left is one of the Welsummer pullets (much thinner, browner legs), and the other pullets are GLW and SBEL, all exactly the same age.

 

18 layers of various breeds and 8 cute chicks... and a broody sitting on the last chicks produced by our Super Blue roo and Super Blue pullet.

 

RIP Gus, our beautiful Super Blue rooster.  May you live on through your beautiful chicks!
