    We bought this welsummer as a pullet. I have a feeling it's a rooster. Second pic shows him/her with our production red "pullet". Which I'm 99% sure is a rooster[​IMG] Do I have two thirds of a boy band here or what? [​IMG]

    How old at they? I'm leaning towards two cockerels.

    6 to 7 weeks. These two have much bigger combs than our other 10.

    With the chest feathers looking red and the comb that big for 6-7 weeks I would say it was a cockerel.
