    So on my last batch of chicks I was supposed to have 2 welsummers (straight run) and a brown leghorn pullet. I thought I had a pullet and a roo welsummer and a brown leghorn pullet but nowe the one I thought was a welsummer rooster has whitish earlobes which would mean leghorn, right? I'm confused, please help!

    Middle bird looks odd to me.....almost like it's neither a Welsummer or a Brown Leghorn. [​IMG] But I'm thinking top appears to be a Leghorn and bottom is a Welsummer. Also, I'm not seeing any long, pointy feathers that would indicate cockerel. How old are they, so I can be sure?

    The first is a Brown Leghorn pullet. The second looks like a mixed breed pullet. The third is a Welsummer pullet. All have female specific coloring.

    Gena's absolutely right about the coloration.....I haven't been thinking lately. [​IMG] No need to know the ages. Sorry about that!
