    I have 4 Well Bred, Welsummer chicks 3.5 weeks old, 2 cockerals and 2
    pullets that NEED HOMES. [​IMG] The plans I had for them fell through. The
    Welsummer is a beautiful breed and the Kellogg's Corn Flake Rooster,
    "Cornelius" is a Welsummer.
    They lay dark brownTerra cotta colored eggs, some with speckles and
    are a very cold hardy bird, despite their beautiful combs and wattles.

    Here are photos of the birds ( in Michigan where I drove to pick up
    the eggs) that parented these chicks:

    Hmmm, I think I need to get my coop built ASAP. I'm near Appleton. I'd say yes, but at the moment have no where to put them. Will be watching this...

    If only you were closer or shipped.

    Beautiful birds, I hope you find them a home.

    Welsummer roos have amazing dispositions by the way, they make amazing petting table birds at the fairs. I've never had one raise a hackle at me.
