    Here are a few photo's. The first three are appear to be of the same variety. How many appear to be roosters? The fourth is a different variety. They are Lt. Brown Leghorns and Welsummers. I believe the first three are the leghorns and the fourth is a welsummer. Am I close? Thanks for the help.

    It looks to me like you may have 3 roosters. Enjoy!

    I agree about it appearing that you have 3 roos. In the first pic, the chicken in the background looks like an EE to me.

    Yes the one in the tear in the first picture is an EE. What I need to know is which is a welsummer? Is the last pic of a welsummer?

    Yes the last picture is a Welsummer. It sure looks like a pullet. I have two of them that are one year old and one that is about 6 weeks old.

    I agree that the first three look like roosters.

    Thanks for the help. We have three of each and couldn't tell the difference and believe all the leghorns may be roosters. We've got a lot of others but these have been difficult to tell apart until recently.
