    p.s. let me know if you need a different picture to tell...[​IMG]

    Have you been able to find any good pics of Welsummer chicks to compare yours with?

    They look like the welsummers I just hatched....and based on what I could find about sexing them, they both look like girls. The girls head & eye markings are very dark & defined while the males are a little blurred. If I can get the pics loaded, I will post mine later...

    Like I said some of the pics look like them, but others have almost all dark brown heads...maybe that's because they are girls?!? I hope so...

    Yes the ducklings are actually ducklings, not chicks [​IMG] You guys are soooooooo silly!

    I remember reading somewhere that you can make a shot at the gender by color; a male is a brighter red color, the females are often brown. This is what I think, I could be totally wrong though.

    If welsummer girls get combs that big by six weeks, I would be surprised. I have never had them though, so I suppose it could be.
