Hey everyone, I'm new to the thread. I was wondering if anyone here is from Va or close to Va? I'm looking for some Wellies. I had a fox take all of mine recently, but I am in the process of putting 2 hot wires around the run so that won't happen again and they will be locked in the coop at night. I was so happy to get a flock of Welsummers and I'd had them for several months and then lost all but 1 pullet in 1 night. It's so frustrating. We found the fox's den and are waiting for him to show himself again, once he does that'll be it for that fox.
IDK how far Thurmont, MD is from you, but Whitmore Farm has very nice Welsummers. They are much better than regular hatchery stock. You would need to pickup small orders like you are wanting.
You could also consider getting a box of 25 and selling the extras locally. There is usually quite a nice market for Welsummer chicks or started birds.
