    10 plus fertile welsummer hatching eggs.
    I keep one rooster to every 3-4 hens
    for higher fertility. $40. total. Priority shipping is included..

    Papal Only.



    We just brought in better quality roosters into our flock to improve egg color.
    My hens have been laying for a few
    months already and are still going strong the welsummer chickens are excellent foragers on free range. In fact, out of all the different breeds I have, It is our Welsummers that spend the least time at their feeders, managing to make the most of their environment. A truly organic breed, the Welsummers are very attractive birds.


    They are friendly birds and really give the place a farmyard feel. They are probably best known for the eggs they lay. These eggs have been described as glowing or "a rich deep flower pot red". They really are the most beautiful large brown eggs.

    Because of the Marans craze The Welsummer are becoming less and less popular they are very rare.

    The most Famous Welsummer is the Rooster on the Kellogs Corn Flake Box.

    Sorry I do not have any pictures of my Fowl yet.
    Thank You,

    For reading.

    I love my pair of Wellies. Sadly they were the only ones to hatch, but I have high hopes for next spring when they are old enough to breed!
    If I didn't have such poor luck with shipped eggs, I'd be all over these! I like my Wellies much better than my Marans.
