    Let me premise with that I realize at this age, no guesses are going to be super accurate but it is fun to speculate and I want to see what others think.

    These littles are 3.5-4 weeks old Welsummers.

    I suspect cockerel here...

    Thinking this might be a pullet. She is the most skittish of the chicks and hard to snap a picture of.

    And the Rhode Island Reds. Suspected 3.5 week old cockerel...

    Hoping this one is a pullet...

    Any thoughts would be great! I hope for a Wellie roo anyway. Any extra cockerels are destined for the freezer.

    Agree with your guesses. One pullet and one cockerel of each breed; that first one in particular has such a huge comb I really doubt that's a pullet.

    Yeah, he's getting quite a bit of pink in it too so I highly suspect. I really want a Welsummer roo anyway so that's great if he is.

    Also, love your avatar and username. We're Supernatural fans in this house too!
