In the Brooder
- Apr 16, 2017
We bought what we thought was a few-days-old Welsummer in mid-March. Definitely looked like a Welsummer chick back then. Now, at 8 weeks or so, we're wondering if we really did get a Welsummer. Here are a few photos. Note the diverse coloring of the wing (which s/he is spreading out in the second photo) and black neck feathers (but no distinct black chest feathers yet). We're also not sure if we have a pullet or cockerel. The comb and wattles haven't grown much over the past two weeks. So we need help figuring out the breed and sex! Thanks!!!
