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.

 

20 layers of various breeds, 1 rooster, and four F2 Super Blues- 2 pullets and 2 cockerels at 15 weeks old, and 16 chicks who jumped into my cart at the feed store!
