Yesterday I hatched a new chick (first time ever!) and I was surprised how much it looks like it's papa. I'm hoping that it has enough Welsummer in it that someone can tell if it's a pullet or a roo. Here are some pics. It's the only one out of the group that hatched. Momma was an Ameraucana.
Just sharing some friday cuteness with you. I believe the chick is starting to show a female marking pattern (eye liner on the eyes) which I hear is typical for female Welsummer chicks. I'm holding out on a final call though until it's a bit older. I thought you guys might enjoy some cuteness though . She/he is so super cute.
