    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!

    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

    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 😔

    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

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

    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

    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.

    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

    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.

    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

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

    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

    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.

    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

    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.

    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

    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.

    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

    No white earlobes so far. I guess they can change once they're fully mature.

    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

    That's what I was thinking but the barring is what's throwing me off. I actually have another one that looks more like a welsummer, less baring and a slight difference in color.

    Welsummer, brown leghorn or welbar?

    Hello, new here. I've been lurking for a few months but decided its finally time I posted something. This year I started with 9 chicks from TSC and regrettably can't remember what the 5 pullet breeds I bought were. I've been looking online and I've come up with 3 similar looking breeds and have...
