    Hi,

    Here are a couple of folks who may be able to help you out:

    Try calling Sterling Meadows Hatchery at: 907-350-5558 OR 907-262-7897

    You might also try emailing Jim LeGendre at [email protected]

    Finally, you might try emailing or calling The Poultry Press and asking them.

    I breed Welsummers but unfortunately I'm in WA. You can see my birds from the link on my BYC page.

    God Bless,

    Thanks for the recommend Tailfeathers! My wife Tori (Mrs. AK-Bird-Brain) and I are Sterling Meadows Hatchery. P.S. our new phone number is 907-953-5558.

    Rebbecca take a look over on www.alaskaslist.com if you haven't already, there was someone in Willow advertising Welsummers last week.

    If those are gone already you could try contacting Jim LeGendre but I believe he is mainly breeding Silver Spangled Hamburg Bantam's. We had an opportunity to meet him last summer at the state fair. He comes up every summer for fishing and has brought folks birds before.
