Hi I have two baby welsummers and they have different coloured feet. One is slightly older than the other by a couple of days i was told and they also have very different markings. My question is does any of this indicate sex?
The one with more distinct markings has more orange feet, the less distinct colourings (brown tipped wings and grey down) has more grayish feet. Thank 20200525_143642.jpg 20200525_143641.jpg 20200525_143450.jpg 20200525_143253.jpg s!

Very cute chicks, but the left greyish one is not Welsumer.
The one on the right side with the brown markings looks like a pullet to me. Welsumer cockerels don't have that dark elongated eyelid-line.

Roos get their feathers very slowly. Yours don't have tail feathers yet so I'd say you have boys. How old are they?

Where did you purchase the two cuties?

Might be Orpington or Wyandotte, but for Wyandotte the comb is not right, so maybe Wyandotte X Orpington mix?

A breeder in Cheshire, UK. He said we took two welsummer, one vorwerk and one silver laced wyandotte.
@Egg Snatcher they are somewhere between 7 and 10 days now
