    I'm really excited for you!!! This year we got four EEs and three Welsummers to add to our flock. The EEs have started laying but we are still waiting on our Wellies. How old are yours?

    Welsy was born on march 24th so she is 23 weeks old. My Partridge Rock is the same age but without the inique dark color, I cannot tell if she has laid of if the other chickens are laying.

    Beautiful!

    I have 3 Welsummers, all 23 weeks with big red combs and wattles and NOT ONE EGG YET! They have to be close, right?

    Quote:My welsummers never start before 24 weeks. I have one girl that's 25 weeks and nothing yet.

    Nice looking eggs! I have three Welsummers in my flock sounds like they might be the last to start laying but that is OK. A lot of my visitors vote the Welsummers my prettiest pullets. [​IMG]

    I want Welsummers so bad but I need to find someplace where I can only get 2 from. I love their dark brown eggs! So pretty!
