    This chick hatched on 2/25. I thought it was a rooster, but I can't see any saddle feathers growing in like some of the other ones the same age. It chick is almost as big as a CornishX the same age. Is it a rooster, or a big hen?

    Is it the Wyandotte in her that's made her so big?? [​IMG]

    She hatched from a dark egg, that's why I think she's half welsummer. The eggs came from a freind that has a SLW roo and assorted hens. Col. Wyandotte, SLW, BSL, BO, Welsummer, and a few others.
