    how old is the chick? from the feathering, i'm gonna guess 2 and a half weeks? either way, looks like a boy to me! wattles already? WOW!
    feather sexing is only reliable with certain breeds....i don't know if your breed fits in with that. and besides, i THINK they have to be younger to feather sex. i'm not positive on that though.

    Quote:It looks like a cockerel to me but not like a purebred Welsummer. Check out the very long and picture heavy Welsummer thread to see what Welsummers are supposed to look like as well as a lot of discussion on sexing Wellies by markings.
