    I noticed that my 4 week old Welsummer chick has a noticeably larger and redder comb and wattles as compared to my other chicks. Its the only Welsummer I have so I don't know have the same breed to compare. Here's a few pics...thoughts anyone?[​IMG]

    I'm thinking cockerel, but I would post again in another week or two to confirm.

    I'm actually not even sure its a Welsummer. It should be but it never had a v marking on its head at all, not even a blurry one. Any ideas of what it could be?
