    I'm guessing it is a pullet, but it isn't a Welsummer, at least not purebred. [​IMG]

    Not the best looking Welsummer but they are still growing.

    You have a cockeral, not a pullet. At that age, the pullets do NOT get big combs and wattles shown in the picture. And I do see a few bronze feathers coming out of his wings tells me it is a cockeral as well. Pullets have some kind of black ticking or pencling of partridge color to it and the breasts are salmon colored.

    Good luck with this little guy!
