    This pullet's comb is longer and pinker than her sister's of the same breed. I'm hoping she isn't a he. Hopefully these pics are good enough to be able to tell. They're about 9/10 weeks. Thanks!

    Looks like a brown Leghorn pullet. Cockerels are colored much differently.

    Guess I better familiarize myself with Brown Leghorns and get to know the visual differences between that and Welsumer. [​IMG]

    Earlobes are easiest. The Leghorns have white, Welsummers have red. There *should* be a significant difference in build but without seeing them together, it's harder to notice that.
