Hello friends - We just purchased 17 Welsummer chicks at four different ages - same parents. Saw the parent birds when picked up
the chicks and they were gorgeous.
We've only previously hatched and raised BRs and we immediately
noticed on the ride home that the Wellies were making totally different
sounds than we've ever heard from our BRs. They were making this
sort of cooing, then almost warbling and then a trilling sort of sound!
We loved it - very soothing and calming - not at all like the loud chirps
and squawks we hear from our BRs.
Is this a 'normal' Wellie thing? Also, when they are beyond the just
hatched stage, how do you differentiate the sexes? Thanks so much.
