    Somehow, I've gotten confused with my Welsummer and Brown Leghorn Roos. I sold my two Roos that I thought were Brown Leghorns last weekend...please tell me these guys are my Welsummers! Hoping to keep one and I have a buyer for the other.

    For 9-weeks-old, this is a Roo. Right?!?

    Those look like wellies to me. Leghorn roos would have white earlobes.

    They are Welsummers. Leghorns have white earlobes.

    Thanks!! And they're definitely both Roos, right? I'm leaning towards keeping the one with the darker red comb for now...not sure if a Wellie is going to stay as one of my two Roos, since I'm planning on keeping a Black Copper Maran and a Delaware at the moment...
