    The pullet chick is on the right, the questionable bird is on the left- the larger one.
    What do you think? That bird is the most obnoxious of all my chicks, he's the most aggressive, always jumping spurs first on the other chicks. No one else in the group behaves that way....

    Yes, he's a cockerel. The dark chest is common on Welsummer males. And look at those super thick legs! BOY

    amosunknown,

    any chance you could post the latest pics of your welsummer pullet and possible roo? assuming you still have him/them.

    speckledhen, that was a great tip about thick legs.

    Love the Welsummer breed. And yes that is a roo, listen to speckled she knows what shes talkin about. Just in case you did not know, an easy way to sex a Welsummer when they are young is by the V on top of there head. If it is very well defined it is a pullet and if the V is broken or light in color it is a cockeral. Compare the top of there heads and you will see what I am talking about.
