    I have two of these guys. I have been calling them Welsummers, but they don't look like other five week old Welsummers I've seen pics of. Thoughts?

    Is the white on their heads coming in or is that down fuzz that's being replaced?

    It's white coming in. Their fuzz was a light tan.

    I'm studying my catalogs. I was going to guess brown Leghorn but not with the white...

    They will be gorgeous roosters! One of my chicks is a light brown leghorn and she has the best personality - begs to be held. And everyone says leghorns dislike human interaction - mine doesn't so far. Just a little worried about them not being so cold hardy.
