    Woke this morning to a game of 'what is different in the bator?',
    and found new chicks hatched, but one is black and white!
    they were bought as pure welsummers... ahem, but guess not!

    guesses? sex, and breed... [​IMG]

    Is it possible you got a surprise egg?

    Hope the rooster didnt get into the Welsummer pen otherwise it would be a cross bred chick.

    Cute tho!

    Looks like there might have been a little "fence hoppin" going on!(that's what my Dad referred to as cheating!) It sure is cute!

    Is it possibly a new genetic mutation in the colour? Are you going to keep it and see how it turns out?

    Sure! We'll keep it and see!
    We are way to wimpy to 'cull' any
    I did email the shipper of the eggs to see what 'other' chickens he might have... Ahem...
