    First shown with two pullets, the two on the outside are Welsummers. I have to admit the one in question, grew faster, developed a comb faster and umm.. started crowing today. So I am rather certain it's a rooster which we can not keep ~ but correct me if I am wrong?

    Most definitely a cockerel. Look at the comb and the shiny rooster feathering coming in.

    I was getting that idea... The tail feathers have a little iridescent look. Very handsome.
