Thanks for your feedback!
To me they all look like pullets, but really they're to young to be 100% sure.
Yea, you can't be sure as to what sex they are when they are soo young.
sometimes you can tell if you look at there wing feathers, points are boys and rounded are girls, it works 70% of the time.
Also boys feather out slower than girls.
I'm sure it's not a 100% but my 8 Welsummer chicks turned out just as I expected based on the definition of the V on the top of their heads. The sharply defined V on #1 says pullet.#2 has a little softer edge so is probably a roo? Not sure about #3 from these pictures, but I'd guess roo?
Mine aren't old all enough to know whether what I've read is true, but I think a sharply defined V on the top of their head & nice dark "eyeliner" indicates a girl. Based on this, I would say 3 looks like a girl, 2 is possibly a boy, & not sure about 1- what does the eyeliner look like on that one?
As they start to feather in more, the girls will get a reddish-salmon colored chest & boys will have a darker chest.
I'll put in my two cents worth. I have hatched Welsummer eggs in my incubator two times. Both times I was able to tell the pullets from the roos by the markings on their head and the "eyeliner". I say Chick 1 is a pullet, #2 a roo, and #3 a pullet.
how do u post pics on here i have 8 new chicks they are 5 1/2 weeks and i was told they were all pullets but now im not so sure! what if i have all roos i will go crazy!
