    My welsummer was sexed at a hatchery as a pullet (it had the right markings). However I'm wondering if anyone can confirm that it is actually a roo. It is now almost 7 was old...bare with me my kids took the photos[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    A Wellie rooster is gorgeous. That is the one that used to be on the Corn Flakes box for years. I had some a few years ago, didn't have room to keep one of the males but they were sweet boys at the teenage stage.
