Pros: 5-6 eggs a week, VERY friendly (follows me around the yard) pretty
Cons: haven't found any yet
I love my welsummer hen stella. she was my first chicken and she is the best. she lays well, and she is soo freindly. (probably because she was raised by a class of kindergardeners) she forages well, and i had her free range all summer and she didnt need any feed although i did give her seeds and such every once in a while because she was eating things on my property all day. she is also a survivor. she was sharing the coop with four pullets when one night a raccoon dug under the wire. all four pullets were eaten, but stella, the survivor-survived. she also survived 3 nights in the deep woods of connecticut surrounded by a group of foxes. she his in a tree and we finally found her after shooing away a bunch of foxes. she is amazing. I don't know if i got lucky with her, but if she is the average welsummer, get a flock of them.
