    I know I have a Welsummer and a Partridge Plymouth Rock but I'm not sure who is who. they are both 6 weeks old. Hopefully they are pullets.

    both together

    Chick on the left is the welsummer, chick on the right is the partridge rock (or so I believe). Not sure on the sex - but the welsummer may be a 'roo.

    The chick on the left is your Welsummer and is a pullet. If she were a cockeral she would have a black breast and by 6 weeks of age would definitely be showing a comb and wattles by now. Pretty little girls. [​IMG]

    I agree with Pinkchick. Your Welsummer is a pullet. [​IMG]

    That goldishness on the neck is the welsummer.
    The PR definitely looks pullet, I don't know wellies but looks girlish.
