This past Wednesday we received our first ever batch of chicks, straight-run. The breeder told me that we can tell the sex of the Welsummers by the darker V and eye-liner for females, and lighter and blurred V and eyeliner for cockerels. There is only one Welsummer that seems to have noticeably lighter markings, but I'm doubtful that it is indeed our only Welsummer cockerel. Here are some photos: [/img] This one, I believe, is a splash Wyandotte. It is the only light colored one we've got, and there are no markings on the head. It's going to be beautiful I think.
