    Hello, this is my first post here :) I have other hens but have wanted Welsummers for a long time and failed to find any. I picked this box of growers up at auction and am hoping there might be a couple of ladys ? looks to me like mainly boys:( What do you think?

    ok after some more research i had another go - i believe they are around 7/8 weeks so too old to do it by the eye stripe? Going by chest colour, these guys are all male, they have darker chests

    Yep, darker chests are boys. Salmon chests are girls.
