    We have two cuckoo Marans and one Welsummer. REALLY hoping this Welsummer is a pullet. They were all sold as pullets, but we all know that can be wrong. Any help would be great! I am curious about Charlotte, the one on the left :)

    How old are they? It's pretty hard to see the bird behind the wire, but I'd guess pullet. Welsummers are most accurately sexed by color, hens will begin developing a gold hackle, salmon breast, and brown body while males will feather out with a black breast and lots of red. If you could add a good photo in good lighting showing the whole body and breast that would be very helpful.

    Sorry I forgot to add that they are about 6 weeks old! I know it's hard to see them through the cage but its the best I could do that was not blurry :)

    Here are a few more
