    Bought as a chick from a hatchery offering 90% accuracy and a return prior to 20 weeks.

    This little one is about 12 weeks... Do you think I'm going to have to make an exchange?

    100% pullet.

    Welsummers are easy peasy once they feather out. A male would have a black breast, females have this salmon/brown color.

    Okay thanks! I felt like I could see some pointy feathers in there, and some of her tail feathers look so long to me! I needed somebody else to weigh in! Thanks.
