    I have 2 welsummers both are from the same hatch/parents, both hatched the same day, BUT one is huge and lighter in color and the other is a bit smaller and very dark rich mahogany-ish in color. Is this normal?

    I don't have any great shots, but I have a few pictures of the right age. Making no claims as to quality, but this might help:

    Here are some photos of my Welsummer pair from above at 6 weeks, female at bottom left, male at upper right:
    [​IMG]
    Gwyneth (Female) at about 7 weeks. Her colors are quite a bit brighter than they appear in this photo.
    [​IMG]
    Pippin (Roo) at about 7 weeks. Pippin's also a lot richer colored than in the photo.

    Hope this helps!
