I tried getting a schedule where I could order everything that I want at the same time and not get too many extras - I've limited space to house them. No such luck, BCM one week, CL a month later, EEs in between. Can't order 75 chicks to get the 8 I want, DH would kill me.

What about Welsummers I want to hear about Welsummers everybody's talking about Marans

I have some beautiful  Welsumers from Privet hatchery.  Their egg color is running between a 6 and 7 on the Maran darkness scale.  Some have spots on their eggs.  
Not to shabby. 
They are not the most friendly chickens, but they are pretty mellow and good foragers.




T
he darker eggs are the Welsumers... and the first eggs they were laying.  They have darken up since this photo.

Also in the carton,  Turkey eggs,, the lightest and largest, with spots....  light brown eggs,, Buff Orps and Speck Sussex.
