    So we bought her as a welsummer but i am now realizing there are some definite differences. For one, her legs are pink. Second her chest is way yellower than any other welsummer chicks I've seen, and third she is a much darker color. Any ideas? Also any gender guesses are welcome.

    For what it's worth, I've noticed a great color and size variation in my hatchery Welsummers. Leg coloration variances are common in hatchery birds, too. Where did you get them?

    Speckled Sussex for sure. SS's have pink legs. She'll be beautiful. Mine is a pretty good layer so far.

    They are very sweet and friendly chickens.
