    I have my doubts because her face looks different from the others', but I don't know, maybe there's variation in facial markings:

    This is her:

    These are the others:

    I haven't had welsummers so I can't say for sure, but that first chick looks more like a buttercup than a welsummer to me.

    Hmm... certainly could be, Welp does sell them. Hope not, I was kinda trying to stay away from Mediterranean types, but we'll see.

    I'll check when I get home, but I'm thinking that she hasn't done much looking straight at the camera (one of the Wyandottes likes to glare straight into the lens, but not her [​IMG] ). I take photos every night, so I may be able to get one specially. She's not one of the more cooperative ones, though.

    But just going from memory, none of them have anything particularly obvious yet. I think hers looks pretty much like the other two at the moment.

    The breed that pops into my head is Golden Campines. There are a lot of similarities, but a comb shot should be definitive.

    too early to tell. I cant find her age anywhere, but i was told 4-5 weeks you should be able to tell.

    She is probably a wellie...that nice V on her head is pretty wellie-ish [​IMG]
     
  10. I have three Buttercup pullets that might be just a bit older and they look different. So, I don't think its Buttercup.
