    I'm pretty sure my 3 Welsummers are pullets, they're 7 weeks now and the coloring is right for pullets. If they WERE roos, at what age would you expect to see the bright feathers appear? Thanks!

    By seven weeks my little roos have always had much redder/bigger combs already.

    I hatched out some Welsummer eggs last month, and its VERY obvious that I have 5 roos and 1 pullet (wah!). They are the easiest breed that Ive had so far to sex early.

    Ummmmm......within 2 to 3 weeks of now, or by 2 to 3 weeks of age? Sorry, I'm a little dense, inadequate caffeine intake today.....
