    I just got two new pullets. The guy that I got them from said that they were Welshimers. I assumed he meant Welsumers, but after doing some research I don’t believe they are Welsumers and I can't find any breed called Welshimers either. They are tall for pullets and are red brown and black. Do I have a couple of mutts on my hands or do you recognize the breed?

    Not sure about breed, but I'd say they're cockerels. [​IMG]

    If those were sold to you as pullets, you need to go back to the seller and get your money back. Those birds are old enough to easily tell they're boys and the seller needs to be accountable.

    Yup, if you just bought these recently, he scammed you. Those are both roosters, and more likely mixes.
