    Hey guys and gals, I have some 3 week old Wellies and Copper Blacks to have a guess at. Going on feathering, growth, behaviour etc I have my ideas, but thought I'd share. Just gonna show 4. 1st Seems pretty obvious!

    1:Gloria/Gilbert A Welsummer, rapidly grown to one of the largest, feathering fast, tail etc, black on breast last few days![​IMG] [​IMG]
    2: Daphne/Dave, another Welly but smaller and no black, yet.. None had eyeliner at hatch [​IMG][​IMG]
    3:Ethel/Eric a Copper Black, Largest and darkest at hatch, stayed big but others have caught up. Feathering but slowerin comparison, more fluffy.. tail there but slower. Less feisty, had the most chicken instinct at hatch! Most independent. Heart says pullet.[​IMG][​IMG]

    And finally Winnifred/Fred,Copper Black, started out wobbly,now one of the largest, feathering fast, full tail, one of the most feisty! And more white than I'd expect for a CB..
    Maybe some cuckoo in there?..
