Quote:Congratulations! Looks like the hatches are doing much better. Here's a helpful discussion link on breeding bars. http://forum.backyardpoultry.com/viewtopic.php?t=363&highlight=legbars They are discussing the Legbar but I think it's the same for the Welbar. Breed the "black" barred roos back to pure Welsummer hens then breed the barred brown hens to barred brown roos (cull all blacks and unbarred browns). The barred brown pullets and the "Pure" barred brown roo offspring from these will be Welbars (I think). Hope you find the info helpful. I'll be using the chicks I hatched from your eggs for my next breeding as well. Keep in touch and let me now how it goes.
