    It may have had a little help but this is what followed me home from the Feed Mill today. Guy said it was about 3-4 weeks old. Any ideas? I don't think it's an EE (has yellow feet), and too skinny for a Welsummer...what do you think?




    Any ideas? Thanks

    My welsummers are almost 3 weeks old, and they seem as slight as brown leghorn babies I've had in the past. That baby looks like my welsummers.

    I thought of a Wellie at first too but he's carried them before I figured if he wasn't sure of the breed, I could probably cross that one off. He's had Brown leghorns, too. So I have two "mystery" babies. He talked me into taking the 4, what we assumed were Barred Rocks, 4 week olds. I sure hope I didn't get all roos! and then a roo and pullet Partridge Cochin. Oh I think I'm in love all over again.

    It is very easy to tell roo from hen in barred rocks early on, as soon as they get their wing feathers most of the time. The roos are very lightly colored and look grey. The females are very dark and are black.
