    Leghorns have white ear lobes, thought they really wouldn't show up well at this age. The chick in the pic looks like a welsumer pullet.

    With both of the pictures, I'd say the first one is the welsummer, the second is the leghorn.

    I have two birds that look just like the bird in the second picture. They were supposed to be Welsummer pullets, but now it looks like I've got brown leghorns, too. Are they pullets or roosters?

    Here's a pic of my supposed Welsummer pullet that I'm now assuming is a Brown Leghorn rooster. It's about 6 weeks old:
