I hatched four welsummer chicks and they are now about 7 weeks old. They are being raised by a friend, and we're trying to figure out their genders. As far as chick color, one was noticably lighter colored. Then that one developed its feathers much more slowly. Now, I went to see them after not seeing them for a few weeks, and one has noticeably distinct wing feather tips. This one's tips come in almost in a funnel shape, whereas the other chicks have rounded wing feather tips. I might be able to post a picture later tonight. Does it sound like we have one cockerel and three hens? They are very beautiful! Also, I was looking at a welp hatchery catalog. We got our eggs on the trading post and our thrilled with them, but I was surprised when the welp catalog said that their version of welsummers are 6lbs in 9weeks? Is that true? Ours are about 7 weeks and seemed about 1.5-2 lbs, not unreasonably huge. Is that just the variety they have? Thanks in advance! Okay, edited to add pictures: This first one is of the pointy wing tips on the suspected boy. The second one is the rounded wing tips, the other three all have this kind. Am I right about pointy wing feather tips being a boy?!? Thanks!
