    I got this chick, along with a diverse breed flock from a hatchery. She was supposed to be a sexed female. However, her quickly changing looks are making me grow increasingly concerned. It seems as though with as easy as it is to auto sex Welsummers, well trained people certainly should be able to get it correct. The looks of this baby are making me start to have my doubts. Thoughts? Any chance at ALL that this could be a pullet or does this one simply scream 100% roo?

    Probably a cockerel. Those chest feathers just look too dark for a pullet.
