Ok, Christie, our resident Welsummer Queen, tells me that she does not sex her chicks by the color, as some do, but by their combs at a very young age. The usual sexing wisdom with Welsummers says that the darker, more defined V's are the girls, the lighter colored ones with the blurrier V's the boys, at least, most of the time. We all know that unless it's an actual sexlink, rules are made to be broken, though. I have a batch of a dozen Wellies who are 9 days old. Going by color alone, I have maybe 8 or 9 pullets out of that bunch, a definite topsy turvy ratio for moi, as many know. Well, I was just communing with the little sweeties in the brooder and WHOA! A pullet-colored baby, at least one I would peg as pullet-colored, is getting quite a comb for a baby just over a week old. So, hmm, guess I will soon be posting the usual "what am I?" pics so everyone can play the guessing game.
