    Anyone need a Welsummer rooster? This boy has the biggest comb, but there's one not too far behind him.

    Wow, now that comb isn't kidding [​IMG]
    Do Welsummers mature early? Or maybe all of my 5 week olds are females, cause I sure don't have any with combs like that!

    Hope all your little ones are cheering you and dh up.

    I'm certainly not the Welsummer expert around these parts, but she looks like one to me, ticks.

    Hey Cyn! He's turning into a handsome young man [​IMG] I've got a little baby that's about the same age I think and he's got a big comb like that too. I did really really want a welsummer rooster...but now I got chicks and I think 4 of them are boys. [​IMG] If only I waited one more week before getting chicks.

    I wish I was closer! I have two 5 week old girls. And your picture confirms for me that they ARE girls! I'm currently two roosters over my limit anyway. He is handsome!

    I have a total of 12 Welsummers and I think I have maybe 4 cockerels out of that bunch. I was going to keep one, but decided not to right now.

    Oh, come on! Are you sure you don't want one of these, Cyn??? (please excuse his tail - it got mangled while he was being transported)
