    Hi I'm wondering if anyone has experience with Anconas? It is 5 weeks old and was meant to be sexed however I am a little suspicious of the fast developing comb and wattle.. I'm
    comparing to a Welsummer and Adulusion of the same age so perhaps there is variation in the breeds? Cheers!

    The Ancona is most definitely a cockerel. Pullets don't start to get that sort of color in the comb till they are almost ready to lay.
