    Yep yep, it's looking like a young Welsummer rooster! He'll be a gorgeous bird!

    He's certainly a male, but I don't think he's pure welsummer. He's got barring on his wing feathers, his coloring is wrong for a pure welsummer.

    Quote:[​IMG] Won't refund until it crows? Any experienced breeder can tell a rooster long before he crows.
