    Well, she is certainly molting.

    I did a little digging since I'm a Silkie person and unfamiliar with many hard feathered breeds. Evidently showing white feathers in birds that come from a hatchery is not unusual. I found one that mentioned different types of Welsummers but I couldn't find any additional information about that.

    All that just to say, she probably is a Welsummer.

    Every breed is different but at five weeks the birds will look little like they will as adults. Maybe share some pictures, we love to see Forum members' birds.
