    Think it's a Welsummer. Male or female???[​IMG]

    Pullet! Her comb is pretty large, so I'm almost leaning more towards Brown Leghorn rather than Welsummer.

    Oh ok...didn't expect that. Will have to read up on brown leghorns now ;)
    So that's 5 chicks becoming 3 pullets that will stay with me and the 2 roosters (crowing and waking neighbours...oooops) re-homed to a farm today.
    Thank you so much for identifying them for me.

    You're welcome! It can be kind of hard to tell the two breeds apart since they look so similar. [​IMG]
