Welbar

Welbar

“I had heard of Welbars and read about the ones in the UK, but they were not available in the US, so I decided to re-create the breed here. It turns out that this is easy to do, there are known "recipes" for the crosses that are needed. It took over 2 years of intensive crossing and selection to get there, but I'm extremely pleased with how they turned out. I am surprised at how dark the eggs...” --dheltzel

Welsummer

Welsummer

“ I spent months researching what breed I wanted when I decided to get chickens about 4 years ago.  I settled on the Welsummer for their reputaion as a great back-yard all-purpose bird, which is what they were designed to be.  I also liked the idea of a dark brown or speckled egg.  When I read Will's descrription of them on teh Whitmore Farm website (www.whitmorefarm.com) as his...” --Jeanniejayne53

White Faced Black Spanish

White Faced Black Spanish

“ These guys are very active, little chickens. We have the standard variety, one rooster and one hen. They seem to always want to be out of the coop, free ranging. When cooped up they spend a lot of time pacing the fence line, wanting out. They are hard to catch when out but once caught, they are very calm. Our children love them. They're flashy with their black bodies and white faces. ” --sclanimals

White Leghorn Pullets

White Leghorn Pullets

“So I said they were friendly and scared of us. Until they squatted were couldn't pick them up. We get 5 eggs a day from our 5 pullets. When they want to come out to forage, they let you know.Make sure your yard or pen is high to keep them in because these chickens can fly up to 6 ft. They're not exactly lap chickens or cuddly, that is if they don't warm up to you when you coddle them as young...” --Studio2770

White Plymouth Rock

“ I just found this young rooster in a field above my farm by a highway. He came right to me, ate cookies from my hand, and let me pick him up without too much fuss. So far in the few hours Ive had him he is a friendly rooster. I thought I would catch him and give him to my friend who loves to take my roosters but I think I have changed my mind :). He would make a great rooster at my other...” --americanamama

White Star Hybrid

White Star Hybrid

“My 4 month old White Star is a great pet. She'll come right over and sit by my leg for comfort and protection, and loves to be pet. She's very mild-tempered, and I haven't seen her get into a fight with any chicken, and vice-versa. I haven't had an egg yet from her, but with her small size, I'm excited to see it.  ” --cluckcluckgirl

Wyandotte

Wyandotte

“ Wyandottes come in an amazing variety of colors, the Silver Laced and Blue Laced Red  being my favorite colors. These wonderfully sweet tempered, dual purpose birds, can be confined or raised to free range, they are adaptable, thrifty, predator savy, and their mellow laid back personality allows them to mingle in a mixed flock, and be a pet as well! Alot depends on how they are raised,...” --little feather

Yokohama

Yokohama

“ I got my first Yokos just a few weeks ago.  It was a dream come true for me.  I've been getting to know them while they're in the quarantine pen, and so far, I'm in love.  Not only are they gorgeous, my roo is such a gentleman.  He selects the best morsels of the greens that I pick for them and offers them to his hen from his beak.  If he drops the greens on the...” --shotah
