    I have 7 Speckled Sussexes. I also ordered one Welsummer but I honestly can't tell the difference between a Welsummer chick and a Speckled Sussex chick. Is there any distinct difference that yall know about? Please help! Thanks! :)

    How about legs? I looked at MPC's website and it looks like their welsummers have pink legs while the ss's have yellow

    I have one that looks just like this - got it thinking it was a welsummer - but it has feathers on its legs & feet - is it a Bantam of some kind?
