    Who's the mom?

    I just had several chicks hatch. Father is a purebred Welsummer. Potential mothers include golden campine, silver campine, and silver leghorn. The chick on the right in the first pic was mothered by a RIR, but the black one and the chick in the second pic could be from any of the hens listed...

    Wellsummer walking funny, not laying

    My 1 1/2 yo Wellsummer hasn’t been laying for around a week, and yesterday when I let the chickens out I noticed she was waddling funny. I checked and she’s not egg-bound but that whole area looks red and inflamed. Any ideas?

    What chick is this?

    I thought he would have larger, nicer looking birds and be able to work with them more if he could be with them starting this year. Then I learned you could hatch fertilized eggs. I figured my daughter, 3, would also like So I bought an incubator and then a dozen eggs. We bought Welsummer as...

    Barnevelder or Welsummer??

    I’ve got 3 chickens that were supposed to be barnevelder pullets when we bought them. I’m thinking they may be welsummer Roos. Is anyone able to tell these two breeds apart? I will attach pics. Pretty positive number 1 is a rooster but I’m new to this so I’m curious about 2 and 3. Definitely...

    8 week old Welsummer-scrawny or sick?

    Hey there, I would really appreciate some input on this! I've got an 8 week old Welsummer cockerel (Bob, formerly Amelia), bought as a "pullet" from a local breeder. Grew at slower pace than the others, but after his comb emerged, I assumed it might be a breed trait for cockerels? I was letting...

    Is my chicken a Welsummer?

    When I got her as a pullet last spring Nellie was identified as a Welsummer. But I’m having my doubts. First, her eggs are white (not brown). Second, she doesn’t quite have the same colors/patterns of pics I see online (I think she’s better-looking than those I see online, too ;)). I was hoping...

    What is this “Americana” mixed with?

    I’m wondering what she is mixed with. She was sold as an “Americana” which I now know thanks to the BYC Community means nothing and is just a marketing ploy by hatcheries capitalizing on the similarity to the Ameraucana name. She’s an Easter egger and I’m totally ok with that! She’s from...

    Sexing help for our new, little flock. 2 months old - 4 breeds.

    I am looking for some help with determining if we have any roos among our little flock. We purchased our 5 chicks from a local farm store, trying to get 5 hens. We were told the breeders had 85% accuracy in sexing, but no guarantees, so we're somewhat prepared for one or two maybe turning out to...

    Welsummer pullet or cockerel?

    I'm 99% sure this is a cockerel based on the bright red comb and the early appearance of some small wattles, but I'd like y'alls opinion as well. It's also very wiry and jumpy compared to the others. This morning it had a hold of the white frizzle chicks neck feathers and was dragging her around...

    "Depressed" Chicken?

    Hey chicken family! I have an 8 week old Welsummer chick that doesn't act like the rest of my chickens. I also have two other 8 weekers and four 14 weekers. When I let them out of their coop, the others are so excited, foraging, and running around the yard. She does this for a few minutes but...

    In Search of Photos of Your Chickens

    Hi! I am brand-new to raising chickens and realized not long after I got my chicks that they may not be what the feed store said they were. Also I read the hatchery they came from may not be the most reputable. I believe they are 4-5 weeks old and I think I have two Welsummers, three SL Polish...

    Who Laid This Egg?

    Hi everyone! So I have a mixed flock of 2 red sex link hens (about 4 years old), a 6 month old Ameracauna rooster, and a 6 month old Welsummer hen. My rooster's comb and wattle are very bright red and though he hasn't been crowing, he's definitely started to assert his dominance (at least over...
