Pros: Huge, beautiful eggs; long laying season; hardy; friendly, but not cuddly
Cons: Seem to prefer to free range (not a con for me, but might be for some)...which does mean searching for eggs upon occasion.
Bought my Wellsummers from Lenster here on BYC...I will definitely be getting more at some point. They have been such a joy, and their eggs are literally remarkable. People always comment on their size and color when they buy eggs.
The hens are very friendly, although they don't love being picked up. They do love being "in your business" when you are out doing things. Mine decided early on that coop life wasn't for them, and they pop out and free range every day. They are pretty aware, though, as I live where there are all kinds of land and air predators and haven't ever lost any.
One of my 4 did go broody, and was an excellent mother. She was the most ferocious guardian of her chicks of all my broodies.
