    Is my little Princess a Prince? No puffy cheeks so mother is not an EE and being solid white, mom must be my Cornish Cross hen. No Mohawk so father must be my Welsummer rooster. I think she is 11-12 weeks old, no younger. She is solid white, the dark spots are dirt, she's been in with the little ones because the Welsummer goes after her which is why I am asking if she could be a Prince.

    Well, he is awfully sweet and tame but that would explain why his father keeps attacking him.

    Everyone, meet Prince. LOL

    He's not really, it's the way he's sitting in my hand. LOL
    He's not bigger than the other chicks his age but considering that his mother has to be my Cornish cross, I'm wondering why he isn't. I was out there to get a picture of him and put more feed in with him and the younger chicks and a hen his age jumped in the cage and he went after her. Trying to drive her back out. I don't know if he was protecting the younger chicks or the food or his home or just feeling his oats. LOL
