    We were supposed to have a Welsummer Pullet that my son named Rosie. I'm afraid that I already know the answer and we actually have a Rocky. What are your thoughts?

    The breeder won't take him/her back until ornamental feathers are visible to know for sure. What are ornamental feathers and when would I expect to see them come in?

    Thanks,
    Becky

    i think ornamental feathers are when they are fully feathered so in a week or two
