    I am afraid that one of my Welsummers is going to be a rooster. It is between 5 and 6 months old. It is the same size as my pullets and hasn't started to crow but I think that I see saddle feathers. What do you think?

    I am going to go on a limb and guess a roo... and I am only guessing that cuz of them tail feathers and the size of his comb in comparrison to the pullet next to him. But do not quote me! I honestly know nothing!

    I see a Pullet - one getting close to laying.


    I see no pointy saddle feathers, nor do her comb/wattles look like a cockerel/rooster.

    Definitely a hen, looks likes she's getting ready to lay! [​IMG]

    Welsummer roosters are colored very differently! [​IMG]
