    It's the Welsummer or Leghorn (can't tell which at this point in time) that the chest coloring is important. One of the Wyandottes has a very red comb for a chick that is still mostly covered in down.

    What do the chest feathers say? Do you need one for the leghorn/welsumer?

    For the Leghorn/Welsummer chick, the color of the chest feathers will tell you gender. Just go look up a few photos of both the rooster and the hens. You'll see how different they are.

    From the photos, it looks like there are enough feathering on the chest to at least indicate one way or another, pullet or cockerel.

    Black chest = male, yes.
