    So, my 3 Welsummer babies are 7 weeks old now, and they each have a noticeable comb, one's is just a bit pinkish, not much, the other two definitely not pink. My 3 EE babies have no combs at all by comparison. What would I expect to see at 7 weeks if they were boys?[​IMG]

    I thought you were supposed to be able to sex welsummers from day one. Aren't they supposed to have particular markings?

    SpeckledHen said she had to wait until hers were older because she had some roos with very similar markings to the hens.

    I am no expert but they look like ladies. If they were roos they would have HUGE combs.

    I think Sage is a boy, & I'm not sure about Rosemary. I have 6 that are the same age- 3 of each!!
