    Hi, everyone!

    My husband and I purchased 5 "welsummer" chicks a few months ago. Well, we ended up with one that is definitely a handsome welsummer rooster, but the other 4 ended up like this. They don't look like welsummer hens, and we're not really sure what they are. A friend mentioned that they could be Danish Leghorn roosters, but they have small, light-colored combs, not much sign of spurs, and don't crow at all. Any ideas? Thanks in advance[​IMG]

    for your help!

    Not sure what your other bird is if he looks different from this, but this is a Welsummer cockerel.

    Thanks! The other one is smaller, has a much larger and bright red comb, longer tail feathers, the beginning of spurs, and he crows like crazy. He looks quite a bit different from these other 4, but they are from the same hatch. I'll try to get a picture of him tonight.
