Is this genetic or something else? These are hatchery Welsummers. Any thoughts or opinions welcomed. I only ended up with 2 cockerels out of 7 straight run Welsummers. Not bad! I have to choose which one to keep and which will go to freezer camp. The boy with the hooky beak is more friendly and the normal looking boy is standoffish. I am leaning twards keeping the bow with the normal beak just to be safe and not pass on any weird genetics. Another thing I have to consider is the hooky beak dude is bigger and has always been the "top dog" of my brood. Normal guy Sorry its not better but you get the idea.
