This is our first post to Backyard Chickens. We bought our first chicks from a local hatchery and one of the chicks we picked up is a sexed Welsummer that was born on 4/20, named Piper. We have been looking at past threads that have been posted because we have a sneaking suspicion that we have a roo, instead of a pullet. The comb, the color of feathers starting to come in on the chest, and now the wattles are what we are noticing. We bought another chick that is a sexed Welsummer that was born on 5/11. Really hoping one of them is a pullet, since we cannot keep a rooster. Luckily, the hatchery will rehome any surprise roosters. Any help is appreciated as we are new to all of this. Thank you in advance.
