    Hi,
    I am trying to figure out the sex of two of my five week old chicks. One is a Welsummer and the other is a Rhode Island Red. I’m pretty sure that the RIR is a pullet. I’m not so sure about the Welsummer. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    They are both girls. [​IMG] Once the Welsummers start feathering, you can tell the difference. The males look more like the Kellogg's rooster, and the females look like fat brown leghorns (minus the white earlobes). Congrats!

    YAY!!!! [​IMG] I am so relieved! I was worried because the Welsummer was growing so fast and is a lot bigger than most of my other chicks. I already have two almost grown roo's and I don't need any more. Thank you all very much!
