    I had a broody hen hatch 7 eggs, twelve weeks ago. 4 were purebred Welsummer eggs and 3 were mutts. I now have 5 chickens that look like Welsummers when I know that I only had 4 eggs hatch. Is one of these cockerels the real Welsummer and the other a mixed chick?

    Sure, here are the 3 girls:

    The remaining two from that hatch look clearly like a Buttercup pullet and a Lakenvelder roo.

    Welsummer/Americana mix? Just a guess looking at the other two hens
