Ethel and Irma have grown into beautiful Cockerels...breed is still a mystery to me!

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by ChickieChickieMama, May 22, 2018.

  1. So these are my two "Welsummer Pullets" as big boys now...they're 7.5 weeks old. Irma looks to me like a brown leghorn but I have no idea what Irma is...is he a Welsummer?
    Irma is our dominant rooster and started crowing last week. Ethel still acts like a hen.

    Ethel at 7.5 weeks:

  9. :celebrate Thank You! Mystery solved at last!!! :clap

    Now...ahem....anyone in the market for a Brown Leghorn or a Welsummer cockerel? :lau

    (Actually I'll hopefully keep the leghorn...so far he has been a fantastic rooster for the flock.)
