    Does anyone know if you can sex welsummers by their coloring? I wanted to by some, but I only want pullets. Can you tell better when they are a little older? Any suggestions would help. I may go buy some tonight.
    thanks!

    I have always sexed mine by choosing the birds with very prominent brown stripes down their back. Always been pullets.
