    We bought these two Welsummers from Meyer. One was supposed to be a rooster... They are four months old now and look the same to me?!?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Thanks everyone. That's what I was thinking. We had ordered a Welsummer rooster and a hen. I just wanted to make sure before we accepted a rooster from a friend.

    Goldfinches, I just have to ask. What about our yard scares you?

    The hills! I've only lived where it's flat, and I'm clumsy. I imagine myself tumbling down those hills in the background, lol!
