    Doesn't look to have the right color for a welsummer. Not sure what breed it is, sorry.

    Thanks for responding Roosterscrow. At least I know and I think its a boy so off to a new home it goes.

    Ok the other egg was a cream legbar. Both eggs were side by side and they hatched when I was asleep. I thought it was a wellie guessed wrong.

    Bristow, ok
    If you think this the legbar chick don't give it away! Male legbar chicks have light spot on top of head and this one doesn't.

    It does look like a female to meet too, the males might not necessarily have spots behind their heads but their chipmunking isn't clearly defined, like this chick.

    I had 2 wellie eggs from this last hatch and overnight some of the chicks hatched. I learned a lesson about mixing eggs in an incubator. I thought I would post and see. Hard to learn about chicks from pics from the internet. Talking to real people is the better way to go.

    Thanks everyone for responding.
