2.5 Weeks, but is it obvious? Could this still be a girl?

    This should be a Welsummer or possibly a Brown Leghorn..we have 5 chicks left that all look exactly alike..except for this very pronounced head gear....

    He stands taller, he acts differently..he is leaner and just "different"...thoughts?

    I don't know brown Leghorns, but if that is a Welsummer, it is a roo.

    I have a very clear memory of my Wellies at 3 weeks of age. I had one roo and two pullets.
