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

  2. 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.
     
  5. You're welcome! It can be kind of hard to tell the two breeds apart since they look so similar. [​IMG]
