    What ones have you had? Which one is your favorite and why? I have two Rhodebar eggs in the incubator and I've also heard really good things about Bielefelders. I don't think EO Basque hens are considered autosexing, but they are pretty close, right? Those are on my major wish list as well. I'm especially interested in hearing about various autosex breed temprements, egg laying abilities and would love pictures of the breeds as well!

    My dream once I get out of the city is to work on my own autosexing breed! I'd love one with a beard like an EE!

    I have Welsummers currently, though for only a few months now. So the jury's still out as to how they perform, once I've had them a year or so...I'll have a stronger opinion.

    I have been researching the Welbar. For setting up a breeding program and starting your own line of an Auto-sexing Breed...you may want to look into the Welbar.
