    Hi all! Raising my first flock who were all hatched together. I've got a gorgeous Welsummer Roo (I Believe?)

    & I'm hoping the rest of my "girls" really are girls[​IMG]. Here's a BR I'm hopeful is a pullet. What do you think?

    Also, any advice on sexing cochins? I don't have pics handy but can't find info on telling the difference. Thanks!

    All the birds I'm seeing look to be pullets!

    they're all female.

    I'm not sure that first bird is a Wellie. Can we get a profile pic?

    BR looks to be a pullet.

    I was thinking the same thing. Maybe a Speckled Sussex? [​IMG]

    Could be a Speckled Sussex. Also Welsummer cockerels commonly have this speckling in the chest and molt it out later.

    The white/pink skin in the very last pic indicates that it's a Speckled Sussex. All look like pullets.

    oh really? That'll be a bummer. When it was younger I popted here and some seemed confident at that point. Let me see if she'll stand still long enough for a good pic!
