This Welsummer chick is about 3.5 weeks old- pullet or cockerel?
Going by the comb, I'd say boy. My 10 week old Welsummer doesnt have that much comb yet.
Gotta be a boy...
Oh that's a BOY.
Oh stop it! This was the lone survivor of a horrible broody gone bad, I wanted this baby to be able to stay with us
It's a boy, sorry.
So I'm just curious to find out what the result was. I just got a Welsummer chick.
I bought 4 wel "pullets" from a couple who knew I was soon getting a straight run order of ameraucanas. They told me they would like to trade one of my ameraucana cockerals for a 5th wel pullet. When I got home with my 5th "pullet" recently, I noticed it and it's comb were larger. Seems I was taken. Pullets have salmon chests while cockerals have black feathers on their chests. Here are pics to show the difference in 4.5 wk chicks: Pullet inside, cockeral outside.
Salmon? I have three 5 week Welsummers and they all have redder breasts. I was assuming that they were all pullets, but horrors... they wouldn't all be cocks would they?
