    I bought a box of 'Welsummer' chicks almost 3 months ago but now that they are getting bigger I am noticing that they look much different from one another. I am also concerned that they have pointed neck feathers which from my little experience leads me to believe that many are male. Please share your expertise with me

    The last picture looks like your only welsummer, and I'm thinking he's a male. The one to the right of him looks like a speckled sussex

    This one looks like 2 welsummer mixed pullets that I have. I would guess some sort of silver colored rooster over a welsummer hen. Dad must've had slate colored legs too. I suspect he was an Easter egger that carried the single comb gene. I think she will most likely lay brown eggs but there's a small chance that she could lay green eggs instead
