I am new here and have 3 Welsummers and a Buff Orpington all about 7 weeks old. EDIT: added 1 Speckled Sussex and 1 ISA Brown both 10 weeks old.
I live in East Haddam, CT.
I'm new to chicken keeping and I like it so far.

:welcome

I have a welsummer and a buff orp too and they are great! I can't wait to get the dark speckled eggs from the wellie. And our buff is the comedy relief of the flock. Welcome to chickening!

Thanks. Our Buff is the most easily handled so far, our 5 year old calls her the vanilla chicken and the Welsummers are the chocolate chickens. The Welsummers are more skittish, but still friendly.

I agree, our welsummer is skittish of us, but she also is constantly on the alert for predators when they are out of the pen ranging. I really think she keeps the whole flock safe. She doesn't really *love* us humans, but she is smart and worth her weight in gold for that.
