    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

    Not very acquainted with ducks but it must be very different when you personally hatch them compared to big hatcheries. It's still very warm here in central/south Texas, I've been getting decent amount of eggs from the other girls I have. Thank you and good luck with yours too!

    TSC always messing up the breeds 🙄. Hey but on the bright side leghorns are really good producers of white eggs! I was anxiously waiting on my Sicilian buttercup to lay some white eggs but she was taken by a predator 😔

    Maybe? 🤷🏽‍♀️ I wish, they'd probably be considered olive eggers if they were crossed with Legbar but egg color is a nice terracotta brown.

    Yes, a really nice brown 💖

    Not sure but that's the info I got from someone here in BYC that recreated the breed :idunno https://www.backyardchickens.com/reviews/welbar.11722/

    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

    Yes! And the weird part is that they're made by crossing a welsummer and a barred rock! So interesting indeed. They're a bit flighty but mine love some wattle petting every now and then.

    Also, they have red earlobes. Well, two of them do and two have them flesh colored.

    Beautiful 😍. I didn't know either until I realized they weren't production chicks so I started to search everywhere and couldn't come to a conclusion.

    No, sorry I forgot to mention it was next to a BR egg for comparison.

    Hello :frowjust wanted to close this case for anyone who was interested in knowing the breed. They did turn out to be welbars after all! Wow, didn't expect that from TSC but I read another post here in BYC and seems like they did carried them here in Texas. Not sure how many are laying yet since...

    Chicken laying on side

    They're simply sunbathing. My brother-in-law saw this happen while one of my chickens just dropped and spread out her wings on the dirt. Scared me half to death but when I went outside she sprung up and ran lol so don't worry about it, she's fine.

    They're are as big as the barred rock and cuckoo maran I bought together. They looked older than the days old I bought the day before so they could possibly be 18 weeks. Edited to clarify that I bought 6 the day before I bought the chickens in question back in April.

    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

    Wow, maybe, considering that there's an Ideal here in Texas. I've searched in TSC website and Hoover is their main hatchery but I've heard that TSC gets their chicks from several hatcheries. Not sure how much longer they'll take to lay eggs, they're 17+ weeks. I'll keep you all updated when they do.

    Comparing them with other online leghorns I see they have the same body structure. I'll update once they mature more and lay me some eggs.
