Found this chick on road, gender?

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Nathaniel Walton, Jun 10, 2017.

  1. Hi all, was just out for a walk a couple of hours ago and found this Lovely little (Presumably Wellsummer) chick all by her own on the side of the road, tweeting loudly. Luckily though, i have 26 week old chicks at home and this one has settled right in! She/he is the same colour as my current welsummer chicks and i am just wondering what gender you think it is, TIA. P.S: I know he/she has got dodgy feet and will be making a split today :) 20170610_151044[1].jpg 20170610_151049[1].jpg 20170610_151044[1].jpg 20170610_151049[1].jpg 20170610_151033[1].jpg 20170610_151049[1].jpg 20170610_151044[1].jpg 20170610_151033[1].jpg

    Too little of a baby to tell
     
  3. was kind of thinking that but have read online that wellsummers are auto sexing so females would have a clearlly defined 'v' on their head, this one kind of does, but kind of doesnt, a lot of mine have clear 'v's

    Out to pasture
    I bet someone dumped her because of her feet :mad: If she isn't too old it should be pretty easy to correct her toes. What a little doll.
