    I got this little chick from a lady who used it as a day old chick for easter pictures. She believed that the farmer she got it from said it was a Welsummer chicken. Do you all agree? She/he is about 3-4 weeks old at this time. Any ideas on gender?

    Looks like a Welsummer to me, and I'm going to say pullet since the comb is still very small and light colored [​IMG]

    There are alot of breeds that look chipmunk but if the farmer said Welsummer then I would assume Welsummer and if it is its a pullet. The V on the head looks very defined. And you can sex Welsummers by the V. Well defind straight V girl, messy V boy.
